Cover: John Prine "Paradise"


This was the first song of John's I knew of, due to my friend Rob bringing it over as a "jam song." I immediately fell in love with the message, melody, and harmonies (not achievable in this solo version, sadly). I can't say I know John Prine's catalog the way many do, but I understand why he is so well loved, and I hope you'll enjoy this song as much as I do.

Bonus for all you "D" tuned players, the original "Paradise" recording is in D as well. So learn it here, then play along.
