Wild World by Cat Stevens | acoustic
An acoustic guitar lesson on how to play "Wild World" by Cat Stevens from his 1970 album "Tea For the Tillerman."
A classic song from a classic album. It's as relevant today as it was back in 1970, with all the crazy stuff going in the world, it's as nuts as ever!
There's always a lot of really nice guitar playing on Cat Stevens albums, as there is on this tune. Many of those parts were played by Welsh guitarist Alun Davies, an excellent musician who contributed greatly to the music. You can read more about Alun here.
Wild World is not too tough to play, but as with most songs that seem simple, it's getting the feel right that's always the hardest part.
Plus, there's a couple of tricky licks, including that one descending line in the chorus that's probably going to give less experienced players some trouble.
It's always a bit tough to go from strumming to picking individual notes, but with a bit of practice it'll come together.
Overall, it's just a really fun song to play. I had a great time working on these videos so I hope you enjoy them. Cheers
