It Doesn't Matter Anymore was written by Paul Anka and first recorded by Buddy Holly. It was the last song he recorded before the fateful plane crash. His version was typical of the rockabilly/country sound he was known for.
Linda Ronstadt brought new life to the song in 1975 when it was part of her Heart like A Wheel album. Her version featured a basic fingerpicking accompaniment, which even she played live on some occasions. This lesson is based on that and should be accessible to everyone with just a bit of fingerpicking experience.
