How to Play Free Fallin’ (John Mayer) – Full Guitar Tutorial and TAB

John Mayer







3rd fret

This is the full guitar lesson for John Mayer’s cover of Free Fallin’.

Tom Petty wrote Free Fallin’ with Jeff Lynne in 1989. John Mayer’s cover of this classic song is simply superb and it can be found on his album Live at the Nokia Theatre. If you’re a John Mayer fan but you haven’t yet learnt this song then you’re in for a real treat!

If you’d like to learn the Tom Petty original then I have a fun, intermediate level fingerstyle arrangement of Free Fallin’ that I’ve previously taught.

Alright, let’s pick up our guitars and learn how to play Free Fallin’!
