Hundreds of local musicians gathered for a group performance of Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door. Tutorials provided on their YouTube page for guitar, mandolin and ukulele. This year Guitar Bar is asking everyone to come join the band once again in our attempt to set a world record. We’re calling on anyone and everyone with an acoustic guitar, mandolin or ukulele (or any other acoustic sting instrument) to join us in another performance of “Knockin on Heaven’s Door” followed by a full set list of easy, popular sons that even beginner guitar players could rock out to. Whether you’ve been playing for years or you’re just starting out, tutorial videos are available that will teach you all the basic open chords you will need.
