Lesson notes

One Of These Days is from Neil Young's 1992 album Harvest Moon. It is in one of his favorite tunings, Double Dropped D, where the first and sixth strings are lowered a whole step, from E to D. The tuning slightly alters the colors of the chords making for some interesting sounds.

The lesson goes into some theory behind the chords and shows various fingering possibilities for many of them. As it is, there are not a lot of chords involved and the strumming is fairly basic. It can be done with a pick or the fingers (like NY does). There are some barre chords and hinge barres (partial barres across some of the middle strings) which may be difficult for beginners. Nonetheless, this is a fun song to play.
