Classical Gas - Solo Fingerstyle Guitar

My #1 most requested fingerstyle song of all time is "Classical Gas" by Mason Williams and I've finally done a video on it! I'm not going to lie, this is a pretty challenging song to play but it's worth putting in the effort to learn it. It's just so satisfying to play once you have it down. To help you with this I have the complete TAB and notation available for you.

It took me a few months to get this one down but my practice for it was pretty sporadic. If I were to work on it nonstopped it would have probably taken me at least two weeks. Keep that in mind as you work through the more challenging bits. Take it measure by measure or even note by note to make it easier to learn. Little chunks of consistent progress are better than trying to take on the whole thing at once and getting frustrated. Make sure to practice this super-slowly at first so you can program it in faster in the long run.

As usual, if you have any questions you can email me at If you need to book a private online video lesson you can head over to the lessons booking page here.
