Hello! Mike here from Guitar Tricks teaching you "Folsom Prison Blues" as made famous by Johnny Cash. This is an iconic, old-school, country classic that features some "must know" country guitar playing.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about open chords, a "boom chick" strumming feel, alternating bass notes, and melodies based off chord shapes.

We are in the key of E, using cut time (half note = 103 bpm).
