  • If I Needed You (Townes Van Zandt) Cover

    Posted by Kitman on February 13, 2023 at 8:08 pm

    One of my 90 day goals is to continue to develop my finger picking skills and I chose to learn this beautiful love song by the great TVZ. Sharing as a fitting song for Valentines Day.

    Heartfelt and well played. Did you have a source for the tab or did you figure it out? Townes was a favorite of ours here in Austin.

    Thanks for watching the post and for your feedback and encouragement @albert_d . I really appreciate it. As far as learning the song I have a go to YouTube channel of Frans Kuijpers. He has a pretty good method of tabbing and teaching finger picked songs. Here is the link for If I Needed You. Have fun – there is a treasure trove of songs in his site.

    That was excellent! Sounded great; smooth and clear. Very nice finger picking. I could see you playing that before an audience.

    @Kitman You did a great job on Towns Van Zandt’s ‘if you needed me’. Both the singing and playing you performed was superb. Then to go the extra step and add the tutorial for us. What can it say?? Thank you so much. Just copied it to the list of songs I want to learn. 😉

        I’m on the tutorial right now. He is very good at explaining what he is doing and takes it slow. I’ll check out his other tutorials too.

    Beautiful. Clean, clear, consistent picking and heartfelt vocals. You are an inspiration to me as I conclude my first year in TAC. Can you tell me how long you’ve been playing and in TAC? Keep up the fine work.
