Black Mountain Rag
Anders will show you all the classic bluegrass moves from the dramatic sounding single note intro, to the melody, the solos and the rhythm guitar plays the classic boom-chick strumming with lots of little embellishments and cool bass movement.
Deep River Blues
Tom will show you all the great moves in this iconic acoustic, bluegrass tune by a legend in the genre. He covers the swingy blues rhythm and licks along with a fast double-time feel and some very fancy Travis-style finger picking.
This bluegrass standard is a treasury of hooks and driving rhythm combined to make one of the most memorable songs ever recorded. We'll walk slowly through the hooks and song parts until you've become a dueling master, never again to be bothered by those pesky banjo types! We'll look at the call-and-response format of the song, the G, C, and D chords and how to strum them, and of course the famous melody line.
Foggy Moutain Breakdown
Tom will show you all the parts to this iconic bluegrass standard: the banjo intro, the rhythm guitar, the slide solo, and the outro.
Get Up John
In this set of bluegrass song lessons, Mike Olekshy will teach "Get Up John", by Emmylou Harris. After setting up the song and talking about gear and tone, Mike will cover the main strumming rhythm and chorus rhythm on acoustic. Next up is are the mandolin fills adapted to electric: first the intro leads, then the two re-intro leads, then the outro leads. We'll do full and single guitar performances, and end with a jam along.
I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow
Mike will show you the acoustic guitar part tuned to dropped D with a capo on the third fret to get some awesome sounding delta blues licks that combine bass notes with upper register chords.
I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow (Made Easy)
Mike will show you this song in a Made Easy format, breaking down the progression to open chord shapes with a capo, and a simple strumming pattern.
Old Joe Clark
Old Joe Clark is a traditional bluegrass standard dating back to the 19th century. Here, three-finger "banjo-roll" style guitar picking is explained in great detail to get that fast, rolling sound on acoustic guitar. We take advantage of and use the open G triad tuning of strings 4, 3 and 2 to help us along. A fun, driving backing track is used to make the tune complete. ►
