Keep Your Lamp Trimmed

Brushing and Damping Techniques

We're re-issuing one of Corey's most popular lessons with re-mastered video, new sheet music and updated loop points. From Corey:

In this last lesson I review the melody and talk about brushing the strings as opposed to digging in too hard.  Muting/damping techniques are also discussed.  Check out the original version by Blind Willie Johnson on youtube.  Good luck.
