(Now and Then There's) A Fool Such as I
Mike will show you the one clean electric guitar layer used in this song that lays down some bluesy licks with double stop bends, single note bluesy fills and triads. There’s also a great chord progression played on the recording by the piano that we’ve adapted to this guitar layer so that you can support the vocal perfectly. The tune features a strong swinging groove that has its roots in country or even ragtime and Dixieland jazz.
