    One of the most simple songs in the history of music, and one of the first songs everyone learns on the guitar. Learn a E chord, then move it up one fret, then back down! I'm sure there is some official melody, but most people have complete freedom to create their own versions, which I think is the coolest thing about this tune.

    I learned it from a book as a kid, but it's been handed down through generations of musicians, and even countries and cultures. I'm gonna post my favorite versions that I could find.

    Carlos Montoya. What a MF'er! His guitar is tuned 2 1/2 steps, and he has a clamp up to D. Also, he has a wound 2nd string to compensate for the low tuning, and the fact that he beats the strings like they owe him $20...

    In his prime, I’m sure he could get a tune out of a mop.

    Twelve notes in the Western musical scale with an infinite amount of possibilities. These are some of the greatest examples!
