Fishermans Blues

Animated Fishermans Blues tab by Waterboys on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

Fishermans Blues by the Waterboys is easy to play on guitar. The whole song is just 4 chords constantly repeated. We're cutting the length of the ActionTab, due to the repetition.

Here are the 4 chords:

G major - F major - A minor - C major

If you are a beginner, don't worry about the strumming just yet. Instead, work on getting smooth, swift chord changes. If that means only doing a few strums per chord at first, then do it that way. Use the Core Skills section on strumming to help you develop this ability. Once your fretboard hand can change between chord shapes more swiftly and accurately, then start working on the strumming.

If you can thumb-mute out the unused lower string(s) for the F, Am and C chords, then do so. This will enable you to strum more freely, without worrying about striking unwanted strings!
