Take Me Back > Lesson 3

In this video I slow down the fingerpicking so that you can get a better idea of what is going on with the tune. I also show you how I play a breakdown that I have added in the middle (not on the original version) to make it a little more interesting. Next time we will continue to work on getting the bass together with the melody as well as learning the ending.

Thanks.

Mance Lipscomb performs "Out And Down" www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMBenjblXpk  and talks about an early form of blues.  A contempoary 16 bar "rag" song "Out And Down" (a Texas variant of "Pallet On The Floor") became Blind Lemon Jefferson's "One Dime Blues".  http://psych.fullerton.edu/mbirnbaum/Mance/index.htm
