Parchman Farm > Rhythm Breakdown

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

In this lesson we will learn my version of Bukka White's famous song, Parchman Farm. I find that this song is best played with finger picks since they give you the kind of attack that you need on the metal strings. The key to this song is the rhythm. Pay close attention to the guitar playing and the rhythms that are played. Start with the alternating bass and then work from there. Take you time and next week we will build on what we have started.

Thanks and enjoy.
