Description

Hi y'all, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks teaching you "Get Up John", as made famous by Emmylou Harris. This is a classic bluegrass track that features some steady acoustic rhythm playing with some smokin' mandolin leads that we'll adapt for guitar.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about open chords, boom chuck strumming, cut time feel, dynamics, and major pentatonic based bluegrass licks.

We are in the key of G, a 2/2 cut-time time signature, at a tempo of 109 bpm.
