Especially on Martha's Vineyard, where his family began living seasonally in the early 1950s, James Taylor's voice and songs are so well-known that we may forget he's also an accomplished guitarist.
He's also a generous one: On his Facebook page and YouTube channel, Taylor is offering a series of free guitar lessons in which he breaks down some of his most famous songs chord by chord, then plays them through.
