Acoustic Campfire: Guitar Tutorials for 33 Timeless Campfire Songs
Nothing beats some sweet acoustic tunes on guitar around the campfire. Singers and strummers of all ages can join in. Here are some songs to enjoy around the campfire with guitar tutorials by YouTube guitar teacher Marty Schwartz. I’ve never met Marty, but he’s sure taught me a lot about playing guitar. Thanks Marty!
Play these guitar tunes as fancy or simple as you like. You can use the tutorials to just learn the chords and strums, or you can include all the fancy finger picking too. It’s up to you!
