Song Lessons – CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’ by The Mamas & The Papas (chords & intro riff)

Song Lessons – CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’ by The Mamas & The Papas (chords & intro riff)

An excellent 1960s guitar tune from The Mamas & The Papas.  Today we’re learning the classic CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’ just in time for summer.

The song has a definitive melodic guitar intro and some good open strumming chords with a repetitive rhythm.

The Capo is on fret 4 if you ‘d like to be in the same key as the recording. Feel free to play this without a capo or find the fret which works with your voice if you’re singing  along too.

Song Lessons – QUE SERA, SERA by Doris Day (3 Chords)

Song Lessons – QUE SERA, SERA by Doris Day (3 Chords)

Que Sera, Sera is a fantastic 3 chord song for a bit of fun on the guitar. The wonderful Doris Day performed this in an easy, chirpy and light way that makes this a pleasure to play.

We’re doing this as a simple ‘thumb-fingers’ picking version with a couple of more complex variations if you’re ready…

The song is in 3/4 so we have a lulling, waltz feel.  Each bar is made up of 3 beats.
