Corey Harris Lesson >

I Can't Be Satisfied > Two Main Riffs

We're re-issuing one of Corey's most popular lessons with new sheet music, re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Corey: 

Today's lesson will focus on the two main riffs of the song. I slow it down so you can get a handle on what is going on. I also discuss the importance of not digging in too much on the strings while you play, as this is the cause of many mistakes...not to mention carpal tunnel syndrome. Keep your touch light and precise on the strings (imagine insect legs). Remember to keep your fingers together in your slide hand which will give you better control.

I look forward to seeing your posts!

Good luck.
