In this fingerstyle guitar lesson we’re going to be learning a really fun, easy arrangement of Ring of Fire.
This classic country song was originally written by June Carter and Merle Kilgore in 1963 but it was the great Johnny Cash that popularised it. This is certainly a much loved song and one that never fails to get people up and dancing.
Ring of Fire is made up of just three very simple chords (G, C, & D). It’s short, upbeat and a real foot tapper. If you’ve not been fingerpicking all that long and are looking for an easy-ish, enjoyable arrangement to learn, then this is a great choice for you.
I’ve also taught an advanced arrangement of this song if you’re up for trying something much harder!
OK, let’s get on with learning Ring of Fire (number 1 on my Top 10 Country Songs for Fingerstyle Guitar list).
