The chords used throughout in Scarborough Fair are simple yet sophisticated. Paul Simon in my humble opinion is a very underrated guitarist.

Paul Simon learned the song in London in 1965 and later along with Art Garfunkel they reworked the song and placed it in counterpoint with their own song ‘Canticle’ creating a very elegant version of the track that sounds fantastic.

The track is played with a capo on the 7th fret which is a little higher than most people dare to use a capo. The frets can start getting a little too close together for many guitarists so this may take a little getting used to.

Let’s learn the brilliant Scarborough Fair on guitar!

The song is played with a capo on the 2nd fret and uses a ‘stock’ fingerpicking pattern that you can learn and apply to songs of your own. Once you have the stock picking pattern mastered you will have the core of the song done. Then it’s time to nail all the little variations and embellishments that really make this version of Scarborough Fair come to life. I go through all of this in the video but you can refer to Scarborough Fair tab alongside it to help.
