In this Star Spangled Banner guitar lesson video, I will show you note-for-note how to play my version of what seems to be almost a rite-of-passage for guitar players to play ever since Jimi Hendrix did his version of it at Woodstock.

In my version, I stay with the melody without trying to add to much extra stuff in there. That isn’t to say that I don’t throw some fun guitar techniques in there though. 馃檪

As it progresses, things get a little bit flashier on the technical side of things, but it is still pretty doable for most intermediate guitarists and above.

I have included TAB for this lesson below.

The Star Spangled Banner Guitar Lesson – National Anthem

This version is in standard tuning and played in the key of E major.

I hope you guys enjoy learning this classic melody no matter what country you are from!
