It doesn't get more country than Hank. Furthermore, there may not be a more broad appeal to other musicians outside the country style than Hank Williams thanks to the bluesy approach he used in his writing.

This song is a standard. You'll be called to play this at any country gig, many times with no notice, so be ready to play it.

The key to this song is knowing the form. If you know the form of the song, you can play it any time in any key. We'll learn the form hear and talk about the other major parts you need to know to make this epitome of bluesy country work for you.

What else should you know? Bob McNett, that's what. He plays a free-styled country lead throughout the song that is a textbook example of country guitar fills. Who's Bob McNett? You learn this part and you'll never forget who he was.

Let's get lonesome.
