Learn Guitar with James Taylor

On Facebook and YouTube, the star singer-songwriter with Island roots shares his guitar technique in a series of free lessons. Here's "Carolina in My Mind," chord by chord.

Especially on Martha's Vineyard, where his family began living seasonally in the early 1950s, James Taylor's voice and songs are so well-known that we may forget he's also an accomplished guitarist. 

He's also a generous one: On his Facebook page and YouTube channel, Taylor is offering a series of free guitar lessons in which he breaks down some of his most famous songs chord by chord, then plays them through.

Find Taylor's video channel at youtube.com/user/jamestaylorvideo and like his Facebook page at  facebook.com/JamesTaylor for updates when he posts a new guitar lesson.
