As you learn to play Windy and Warm, be sure to frequently return to the performance as a good reference point and guide.
A minor (without capo)
Windy and Warm was originally written by John D. Loudermilk and was first recorded and released in 1961 by the great Chet Atkins.
Since then it’s become a classic instrumental song and a very popular tune for fingerstyle players to learn. One person who was heavily inspired by the song is Tommy Emmanuel, and in this lesson we’re learning his version of it.
Although it may seem an easy song to play when you first listen to it, I can assure you that Windy and Warm is actually really quite hard at times and will very likely require some serious practice. However, don’t let that deter you as there’s so much to learn from it.
