Inspired By Blind Blake

In this lesson I'm gonna show you an example that I came up with after listening to a guitar player by the name of Blind Blake, who was one of the original guys to play this style. If today is your first time playing this style, this example might be really hard for you to learn.

But the trick is to forget about the big picture while you're learning it. Just take one note at the time and look at what melody notes line up with the bass notes and so on. Then as you get more and more comfortable it will start to sound like music, and all of a sudden you'll hear yourself playing bass, chords and melody at the same time!
