Lesson notes

Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing is one of Neil Young’s earliest songs and was the first single for The Buffalo Springfield, released on their 1966 album. Their version was a typical band effort so this lesson is based more on how Neil plays it solo, particularly as found on his Live At The Canterbury House CD. It is mostly easy chords and the challenge in the song is making a smooth transition when it changes time signatures, alternating between parts in 4/4 time and 3/4 time.
