Lonesome Road Blues

Back
  • Nothing but the melody. Make sure you use a strong rest stroke on those dotted half notes. Anytime you have along sustained note, like a half note or dotted half, you have a great opportunity to throw in some hot licks. Use the substitution licks here to give yourself some ideas of things you could play, then try and make up your own variations based on the ones we've provided for you.

  • Nothin' too fancy here, but measure 4 may be a little tricky. Use the loop feature and slow down the tempo to master the string crossing and the triplet. The substitution measures are always there if you want to add another flavor or tackle a new challenge.

  • We've got an arrangement that starts as an up the neck break then moves down to first position with a little bit of cross-picking. This is best known as a banjo tune in the bluegrass world. So we might as well try and imitate the way Earl done it!
