Easy Guitar Song – Teach Your Children by Crosby Stills Nash & Young

Learn how to play the song “Teach Your Children” by Crosby Stills Nash & Young with this easy to follow guitar lesson. Teach Your Children was written by Graham Nash. It was written while Nash was still a member of the group “The Hollies”, but it was never released with them. Instead, it was released on the album “Deja Vu “ by by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young released in 1970. You can learn more about the history behind this song by reading the article over at Wikipedia by clicking here.

This easy song is considered a Country rock, Folk rock tune, which was a very popular style of music back in the 1960’s. It is a fairly easy song to play and uses the chords: D Major, G Major, A Major and B Minor.

The only challenge will be the switch to the B Minor Chord. I know, we hear B Minor and we automatically think its a difficult chord. I promise you it isn’t, at least not this version of B Minor. Just practice switching to the B Minor over and over again in this song until you can do it without error or delay.

They teach by “lesson set” instead of just flopping out a ton of small video clips. They start with the very basics like tuning your guitar, finger placement, and basic chords, and move on to finger-picking, palm muting, hammer ons, pull offs, and many more advanced topics as you progress through the lessons. We found this surprisingly good for the overall experience, because you can follow through these lesson sets just how you would with a normal guitar teacher.
