Lesson ID: A0151

In this country guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play a country & bluegrass version of the old classic melody “You Are My Sunshine”. This is a Carter style arrangement where we’ll combine “boom chick” country strumming with the song’s melody line. We’ll also work on a few country fills in the style of Gene Autry. Overall this is a great lesson for developing accurate picking and strumming.
