HARVEST by Neil Young

I'm a real big Neil Young fan and this is another of my favorites.

The song is pretty simple, mostly open chords (but you do need a Bmin) and uses a really nice Country style strumming pattern with the bass notes played on 1 and 3 and a lazy finger down up strum on 2+ and 4+.

The only strange bit is one of the bass movements where you'll play the D with the A bass note on beat 1 which is a little unusual - usually you play the root of the chord on beat 1 and the alternating 5th (if you play the chord for the whole bar) would come on beat 3. It sounds almost wrong when you try and play it at first, but it is exactly like the record. So really concentrate on the bass note order.
