Nobody’s Darlin’ but Mine

Lesson ID: A0195

In this guitar lesson, we’ll work on a guitar solo that follows the melody of “Nobody’s Darlin’ but Mine” written by Jimmie Davis. In this lesson, we’ll focus on the version of this song as it was recorded by Merle Haggard. This guitar solo is a really good example of how to play classic country lead guitar over a song’s chord progression. After you learn the guitar solo arrangement, practice your country strumming over the chord progression using a |Pick-D-DU|Pick-D-DU| strumming pattern. When you’re playing the strumming pattern, make sure your alternating bass line picks are loud and clean while your “Down-DownUp” strums are soft and smooth.

Devin,
Why is the tab from the download different from the tab on your video lesson. On your video there are lines drawn down from the numbers. Some have little flags on them and some have periods. Just curious….

Devin,
When you show available lessons, what does it mean “lyrics available”?
i can’t seem to find any printed lyrics.

I always thought this was a Louvin Brothers song, because that is the version I have.
Anyway, thanks for this Devin.

Is it possible to add the option to download tab in Guitar Pro format? It’s such a great practice tool, but no way to easily convert a pdf to their file format.

I was playing this tonight and shaking my guitar and bending strings and my son said,’you think you’re pretty cool now eh?’
