Discuss the Guitar lesson: Eighth of January



This one is also known as “The Battle of New Orleans”…we’ve got two guitar solos that would make both Ol’ Hickory AND Johnny Horton proud! Let’s start with a basic melody then beef it on up.


I must say Sir… I really like this version.
Planning to start learning it this afternoon.


Oh nice! This was actually one of my banjo lessons from 32 years ago that I was never able to conquer. It was nothing but melodic picking and I just wasn’t ready for it. I may have to go back and see if I can try it again.


I have a pdf and a tabedit version of this tune by Tony Rice,but can’t find the video.You covered his sixteenth and quarter note pulloffs if I remember correctly.
