Free Fallin by Tom Petty

Justinguitar.com Song Lessons

I should have done this song years ago, it's been on my todo list and I feel a little ashamed that it took Tom's passing to revisit his amazing music. I'm sure you'll enjoy playing this one and if you take car eof the rhythm and the chord fingerings, it's not a particulary difficult one to play, though mastering the groove is the key!
