You're So Vain - Guitar Lesson
Songs & Artists - Carly Simon
For slower internet connection choose a lower video resolution.

Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members You're So Vain is one of Carly Simon’s biggest hits and a song of much speculation on the subject matter. We will save that for another day and take a look at just playing it on the guitar. This lesson goes over the basic parts- strumming the chords and adding a little piano fill, but also includes a way to play the introduction that incorporates parts done on the bass, acoustic guitar, and piano as well. Important techniques that are covered are percussive strumming using the left hand to mute the strings, and right hand palm muting to muffle some bass notes.
