This is the full guitar lesson for May You Never by John Martyn.
Martyn recorded May You Never in 1972 and the song was released on his classic album Solid Air (1973). It quickly became one of Martyn’s best-known and loved songs, and for good reason – it’s a brilliantly crafted, timeless folk song.
