Annie’s Song by John Denver

    There are 2 guitar parts in this entire song. If you can learn the Intro and the 1st Verse, everything else is repetitive. Don’t let the rather brisk pace to confuse you. The chords you are playing are standard chords that we all should know by now.

    It might take a little while to get everything up to speed, but once you get the theme down, the chords repeat rather frequently.


    Guitar 2 is playing natural harmonics (N.H.) which is played by lightly touching the string noted on the tablature just a little behind the middle of the fret that is noted. You’ll know when you get it right. It just sounds like a harmonic!

    Pay close attention to the timing – it’s 3/4. I found it rather hard to hit these harmonics with the Ovation I am using. Try your best and experiment with different acoustics if you have them!
