Guitar Rag > Lesson 2

In this lesson I divide the tune into three different sections. I slow down each section so you can hear what is going on. Take your time with the alternating bass if that is still a challenge for you. Enjoy!

gonna have to shed on that transition lick....I got a bunch of rag licks that do not slow down easily..like the striongs will not respond right at a slower pace. There are some Hendrix licks that are like that when I play em too.

 

and again I do not think that is a diminished after the F but rather a D with the third in the bass.

Love this tune Corey!  It's hard, but well worth it.  I find myself singing it / humming along too. 

Right now I'm just working through all of the sections very slowly to get my fingers comfortable with it.  I will post a video later this week.  Thanks!
