Lesson notes

Neil Young joined the Buffalo Springfield in 1966 with a big backlog of songs he had been writing over the previous few years. Flying On The Ground Is Wrong was originally recorded with Richie Furay taking the lead vocal (supposedly a sweeter voice???). Neil Young continued to perform it live for many years and this lesson looks mainly at the way his demo was done. The live version from The Riverboat in 1969 is very similar.

The song uses many different chords and is best done with double time strumming.
