The Star Spangled Banner National Anthem Guitar Tab
National Anthem Guitar Tablature
The "Star-Spangled Banner" by Francis Scott Key and John Stafford Smith is the national anthem of the United States of America.
A video demo of me playing the national anthem on the guitar is at the bottom of the page!
I saw the music notation for the Star-Spangled Banner at Wikipedia and thought it would fun and helpful to TAB it out for guitar using the DragonGuitarTAB Editor. Why not impress your American friends on the next 4th of July and play the National Anthem for them on guitar!
So here it is.
The Star Spangled Banner Guitar Video
In this video I demonstrate how to play The Star Spangled Banner on my electric guitar. If it sounds like I am playing it faster than what you are used to, that is because I am! Did you know that the original music was faster than what you hear today? For some reason in the last 50 years or so it has been played and sung a lot slower than the original music.
*** When I recorded this video I mistakenly recorded the audio in Surround Sound. So if you have trouble hearing hi,t try listening to it through headphones.
