Things About Coming My Way > Solo and Mance Lipscomb Style

Now that you have the technical basics, it's time to let the fingers dance. There is one variation that I call the Mance Lipscomb 'single-pulse' style. it's different from the double thumbing Piedmont style, but close enough so that it can be used instead, if you wish. If you want to sing the tune, so much the better.

No matter how you do it your right thumb will carry you through.

Hi Guy,

Incredible lesson. Thank you so much for bringing this song to us.

Mike, what I mean by the G7 is in the treble is that during this particular solo, the note F is pressed by the left index finger at the top of the G7 chord. When I am playing the G7 chord during the regular verse, the note G is fingered at the top of the chord, and the F is fingered on the third fret of the D string.

Hey Guy,

What did you mean when you said "this time the g7 is in the treble"?.

Great lesson by the way!  You really made me want to learn this song.

Thank You
