Dust in The Wind Chord Chart
by Kansas

Welcome to my Dust in The Wind Chord Chart. This is such a beautiful song by Kansas. Dust in the Wind uses a common picking pattern known as Travis picking. If you would like to learn more about Travis Picking or learn how to finger pick better, check out my Guitar Course where I have 20 lessons on finger picking.

The only down side to this song is that it is fast and requires some skill at playing it up to speed.

If you are a beginner, you can use 4 down strums per chord to play this song, but the real feel comes across when you learn how to Travis Pick the song. A Tab excerpt of how to play the verse is below. You can see it is a bit intricate and requires some finger picking skill. So that's is how to pick Dust in the Wind.
