America - Sister Golden Hair


Album cover for America song Sister Golden Hair

Such a great song, from a great band at the height of their career. The guitar intro is fantastic and it's truly a classic of the folk-rock style. From the 1975 "Hearts" album, here are the guitar chords for "Sister Golden Hair."


I've transcribed this version using a Capo at the 4th fret. Otherwise you will need to play a lot of bar chords, which isn't ideal for beginning students.
