How to Play 10 Summer Themed Songs on Guitar [Infographic]

Summer is full of backyard bbq’s, road trips, and of course fun guitar songs! Often times when we think of summers past, we’re taken back to great memories of vacations, places we’ve traveled, and the songs we were listening to when we had these cherished experiences.

Of course, summer wouldn’t be complete without acoustic guitars and friends gathered around them. So, picture yourself sitting around a beach bonfire or backyard fire pit with a guitar in your hands surrounded by good friends. Perhaps you’re playing some summer classics like Jimmy Buffet’s “Margaritaville” or Bryan Adams’ “Summer of 69”. Maybe you’re playing something a little more recent such as “Riptide” by Vance Joy or “Hey Soul Sister” by Train.
