That's Alright > Final Chorus

Hello Guitar Lovers, this week we are learning the the final verse for "That's Alright." We start the same way as the other vocal verses with the only difference here being that after the 4 change we come back with a fill before going to the 5 and finishing the tune. It's a perfect blues composition consisting of few little more guitar fills added in each verse. Then I demonstrate many things you can add in this, or a song like it. I also show many of my favorite inversions of turn arounds here which is a whole lesson in itself!

Enjoy, Duke

Duke, i learned a lot from this lesson. There are so many nuances in the finger style playing you showed us that I can go back to this video over and over and not absorb it all. The biggest one is keeping the bass line going on the 4 chord and other times when there is a melody on the high strings. I learned more licks than I showed on the video but I had to keep it simple when singing, otherwise I lose the time. Thanks again. I'm looking forward to what ever is next!

Welcome home Duke!  Hope you had a great time in Europe.

Apologies for the singing here.  This is my attempt at learning the whole song.  I plan to use it at the next jam.

Thank you for the great lesson
