As you learn to play this fingerstyle arrangement of Take It Easy, be sure to frequently return to the performance as a good reference point and guide.
This is the full guitar lesson for my fingerstyle arrangement of Take It Easy by The Eagles.
Take It Easy was written by Jackson Browne and Eagles band member Glenn Frey in 1972. It was the bands first single and went on to peak at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. To this day it remains one of the band’s best-known and most loved songs.
The arrangement in this guitar lesson is pretty demanding. Whilst the chord progressions are straightforward, the melody is busy and has lots of small nuances that you just have to learn.
Having said that, it’s an incredible amount of fun to play and once mastered it sounds fantastic!
Alright, let’s start learning Take It Easy!
