In this lesson, Singer/Songwriter Tim Bergstrom teaches you the song “Imagine” by John Lennon. It was released in October of 1971 and went on to reach number 3 during its 9 week run on the charts. It has also been listed as number 3 on Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” list. 
Lennon actually wrote this song in his bedroom at his estate in Ascot England. In addition to its chart success, it went on to become an anthem for peace among activists all over the world and is arguably one of the most famous songs of his solo career.

Tim plays a Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird in the lesson.

    Tim Bergstrom is a singer/songwriter out of Nashville, TN who has a sound that has been 15 years in the making. An Indiana native, Tim spent countless hours sitting in front his bedroom stereo being influenced from everything from CCM to jazz to rock 'n roll. Among these influences, Ben Harper, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Bob Marley had large impressions early on. But as Tim has progressed in his songwriting and his playing he has settled into a sound that is in the same vane as Ryan Adams, The Wallflowers, Augustana, and Tom Petty. His most recent release Found is a return to his roots in CCM while applying his acquired "straight ahead" sound. In recent years Tim has worked with up and comers such as The Daylights, Andy Davis, Mariah McManus, The CO, and more.
