Lynyrd Skynyrd chords

A wide majority of bands have started their way in music playing in pubs and cafés. Lynyrd Skynyrd were in the same situation. For 9 years after founding the group has been acting only in American restaurants.

But in 1974 everything changed. The second album called "Second helping" comprised the most popular song - Sweet Home Alabama. Thanks to it the band became really famous and continued their activity. In 1977 after 3 days of releasing the latest album the band were going to their tour to Louisiana by the plane, but it crushed and three of them died. The others were seriously injured and weren’t able to play. That was the reason of breaking up the whole band, because the founder of the band has also been in this very plane.

In 1987 the rest of the original cast gathered again, and they still are singing and organizing tours in the United States of America. For example, from 2018 to 2020 they gave "Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour".

In 2006 Lynyrd Skynyrd became the member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Though the band was well-known only for two of their pieces of music, many people enjoy playing their chords and singing lyrics. You can find all the necessary things for that on our website!

By the way, do you know where the name of the band comes from? That's quite a peculiar story. When the co-founders were studying at school, there was a PE teacher who didn't like the boys' long hair. His name was Leonard Skinner, and, as you may guess, it was the prototype for them. Though, they took it only after several years of acting.
