Lesson notes

Ghost Riders In The Sky is a cowboy classic from the 1940s. It has been done by innumerable artists over the years, ranging from the original done by Burl Ives to surf, country, pop, trance, and even alt and metal bands. This lesson goes over Johnny Cash’s version, released in 1979 on his album Silver. It is pretty standard country strumming but we take a short look at the lead and even a bit on incorporating it into the strum.
