In this free guitar lesson I perform an instrumental version of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry.” Following the whole performance is a complete breakdown of the chords, chord progression, and scales used. You learn how you can play some parts from the song, and improvise your own lead guitar solo. This material is suitable for intermediate level players on up and requires prior knowledge of open position chords, barre chords, major and pentatonic scale patterns.

Guitar Tab
Sorry, guitar tab is not available. Please watch the whole video closely because I slow down and demonstrate all my licks and phrases. If you would like to practice playing with my play-along jam track, stream or download it here: Bob Marley Guitar Play Along Jam Track

    how did you do that at 00:14?

  • Mr. Desi Serna

    That's the C major scale in inverted thirds. Start with the first fret of string 2 and play it together with the second fret of string 4. Next play the third fret of string 2 with the third fret of string 4. Then play both strings at the fifth fret. Try sliding between these intervals forward and backward.

    Hello, your version is amazing. But I am not that good with the guitar. Is it possible to have a paper method? It would be easier for me…
    Thank you for your answer ! Cyril

    Sorry, Cyril. I don’t have tab for this.

  • I’ve purchased both of your fretboard thory books. Read both. I would say that I understand most everything covered, but still having difficulty with advancing my guitar playing.

    I’ve learned the caged method for most chordes, know my barre chords and do some fingerstyle picking. I don’t seem to make headway. What should I be doing?

    Help, frustrated!

  • Hi, Harold. That’s a pretty open-ended question. I can’t determine what’s keeping you from progressing without more details. One thing I suspect is that you need to work on your repertoire. It’s not enough to learn a chord shape or scale pattern. You must put these things to use by learning and playing songs. Lots of them!
