Hey Folks, I know I’m a fingerpicker, but every once in a while people ask if I know any bluegrass. I typically go straight to Red Haired Boy. Here is a simple version of this tune in G. It’s usually played in A with a capo on fret 2, but hey I just kept it in G since you don’t have a capo right where you’re sittin.
Here is a practice track at 100 bpm that I put together so that you can play the melody over the top of my strumming. Have a blast! And don’t forget if you enjoyed this post, buy me a cup of coffee, or a bag, whatever you like by using my TIP JAR
Hey everyone! A lot of people ask me from time to time who some of my favorite artists are. Here lately it’s been a lot of Brandi Carlile. Me and my wife really enjoy here songs and have seen her perform in Nashville several times. Her music has certainly been my goto station on Pandora Radio.
I thought, as a fan, I would give a lesson of her new song, “The Eye”
Isn’t it nice? Now for the fun part.. I challenge you to learn the song and enjoy for your self. Having the capo up high may be strange, but it sure is a pleasure to play.

Now that you know I worked really hard to put this together, consider taking Skype Guitar lessons with me, or sending me a tip to paypal. I really enjoy teaching and I’m fortunate enough to make a modest living doing so.
And Brandi and the twins… If you all find this somehow, I hope you will endorse it and perhaps we could hang out sometime in Nashville TN. I’ll buy you coffee at my favorite coffee house called Eighth and Roast. Thanks for being awesome!
