Lesson Info

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.
