Boys of Summer is a great song to learn how to play on guitar.
Not too easy, and not too hard either.
Boys of Summer is a song by Don Henley off his solo album Building the Perfect Beast.
It was the first track and single of this album that was released in 1984.
One of the challenge’s in playing this song is that it is recorded in Eb.
So I have just used normal tuning with open chords for you below.
Playing it in E means you have to dig deep ( or wear tighter jeans ) to hit the higher notes if you are singing along while playing.
And also if you want to play along with the Youtube videos it makes this a bit harder too.
This is the first time I have learnt to play Boys of Summer, but it has always been a song in my music collection or on my iPod for many years.
The chords for guitar are below, also some notes on playing, and the Youtube videos for Boys of Summer are below too.
