Guitar Noise Podcast #17 – "Streets of Laredo" – Part 2


Hello to all!

Let’s get right on with our work with the traditional song, “Streets of Laredo,” one that some of you may recognize from Johnny Cash’s “American Recordings IV.” In this Guitar Noise Podcast, we’ll look at creating walking bass lines from D to G chords. We’ll also start to tackle the “chorus” section of this song.

As always, I’ll be walking you step by step through the lesson. And, as always, please let us know what you think.
