What's up everyone, this is Henrik for Guitar Tricks and today we're going to learn an acoustic folk classic, "Five Hundred Miles", as made famous by Peter, Paul, and Mary.

This song is a great example of an acoustic hit from the folk period of the early 60s. We'll learn two ways of playing this: a simple strumming approach, and a finger picked approach.

This song is in 4/4 time, at a tempo of 97 bpm.
