This lesson is designed to show you how to play a relatively easy delta blues fingerstyle composition. I realize that the word “easy” is totally subjective and will mean different things for different players, but the truth is that fingerstyle playing is just awkward when you first try it. It’s awkward for everyone though. This composition has a droning bass line which fall right on the beat, so you’re not trying to deal with an alternating bass line like you would if you tried to play Chet Atkins style. Even if you’ve been frustrated with fingerstyle in the past, I’d encourage you to give this one a try!
This lesson was re-named in honor of site member Brian (BriUK Lefty) who is no longer with us but was a big part of the ActiveMelody community. Brian used this lesson for his last site member challenge. R.I.P Brian.
