John Denver - Leaving on A Jet Plane

Here's how to play Leaving on a jet plane by John Denver. In this video, we cover how to play a simple strumming version just using the chord G major, C major and D major.

I also unbox and review the excellent Journey Instruments Head Over travel guitar! The Overhead series by Journey Instruments is designed to bring guitarists the best all-around acoustic travel guitar experience for those who want to take their guitar with them where ever you're going.


This Overhead guitar series feature a full-scale detachable neck with stainless steel hardware and carbon reinforcement, passive piezo pickup, and a sweet backpack that meets airlines carry-on dimension requirements of 22*14*9 inches - with room for other bits and bobs too!!

Fingerstyle Pattern 1 - Inside Out    

‘Inside Out’ is a name for a common fingerstyle pattern, which will be made more complex in each exercise. In my experience, there is no better exercise to get your finger picking working well for whatever songs or patterns you then go on to play!
