Mama Tried

As made famous by: Merle Haggard

Lesson Info

This tutorial was inspired by a great country classic from the legendary Merle Haggard in 1968. This song is one of the most requested, and it can still be heard several times a day on lower Broadway in Nashville. We'll learn the verse and chorus chord progressions, the signature intro lick, the solo and tone, the dobro parts, and there's an acoustic and electric play along to boot!
