Old Grimes

Learning the Tune

We're re-issuing one of Chris's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Chris: 

Hello! This week we're starting a new tune, Old Grimes, that Julian Lage and I recorded on our new album Mount Royal. It's a super sweet tune, with an interesting melody and unusually sweet chords. This week I'm going to teach you those chords. Once you've got them down, try improvising over them. Anything you play in the key of D will work!
