Most of my lessons on YouTube will either supplement the course material here or provide additional resources for those already finished the beginner courses. Rather than trawling through YouTube this page enables you to filter the list to find musicianship or song lessons for different types of guitars. Lessons marked EZ will be referenced in the main courses while intermediate and advanced lessons are better attempted once you've finished and have some solid skills under your belt. As always let me know how you go.

This is actually the harmonica riff but the guitar underneath is not nearly as strong in Muddy's version so everyone just plays this, and it works better on the 3 string anyway.

On The Road Again

The classic John Lee Hooker riff in a Canned Heat tune from the late '60's. The main thing to get right with this one is your right hand. This is a great tune to practice those Hooker boogies, a shuffle with a s sharp staccato back beat.
