We're re-issuing one of Corey's most popular lessons with new sheet music, re-mastered video and updated loop points. This lesson is from Corey's guest Artist, Blues Legend Guy Davis. From Guy:
Now we are working on the acoustic guitar, meat and potatoes version of Little Red Rooster. The main riff is accomplished by hitting the open E string followed by the note G with the left ring finger on the third fret, and over to the open A string. Remember how we made the A by barring the 2nd fret with the left index finger and using the pinky? Well it's exactly the same here. The pinky covers the second and third string at the 5th fret, then lifts off, and then recovers the first and second strings, still on the 5th fret. Remember to walk your thumb up to the 2nd fret to make the D9 chord. D9 is just like a D7, except you leave the first string open. BTW, occasionally during the video, I erroneously say D7 chord when I mean D9. Don't pay me any mind, because I'm on medication... Or something! The turn around begins with an E to E7 chord, walk up to the D9 and then repeat the main riff.
