Whiskey Before Breakfast

The tune of the day is


This is an old stand-by tune that almost every jam group plays, so if you know this one, you can play it anywhere! There are so many wild and crazy versions of Whiskey Before Breakfast, especially for the guitar, but for the purposes of this website, I chose the basic melody. You can learn this, and then embellish on it later to your heart’s content. 🙂 In the key of D, its lays well on the guitar, and is a very easy melody to remember. When I was first starting out on the guitar, the chords on this tune just were too many and went too fast, but when I made myself memorize the chord progression, then I was able to play it and enjoy it! So, just take time to learn the chords so that you don’t have to either follow someone else, or look it up in a book. You’ll be glad you did!

So, grab your guitar, and learn this wonderful tune!
