Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members Today we bring out a classic by the Buffalo Springfield, For What It's Worth; a song we are happy to put in the Free Lesson section for all to enjoy. This is another great example of how a few simple chords, with minimal decorations, can be the foundation of a song for the ages. We also take a look at combining Neil Young's harmonics with the strumming.

Ok the strumming pattern for what it's worth is D D UUDUD? Can you please slow it down or call out Down Up as you are doing it. Thanks written by jordan86, September 28, 2012
Thanks for the "harmonic/strummin" tip! Didn't take too long to get a clean sound and it really adds to the sound!written by Dugger, July 05, 2012

The lesson is Part 1: For What It's Worth. Is that what you were looking at?written by TGNeil, March 08, 2011
It says this song is available as a free lesson. But it's just a teaser, with no lesson at all. I'd be happy to pay for the full lesson if I could figure out how to do it. Buffalo Springfield is not included in the list of groups.written by uncle_wayne, March 08, 2011
