Song Lesson: Mary Had a Little Lamb (Stevie Ray Vaughan)
This is one of my favorite songs by my favorite guitarist with probably my favorite guitar tones of all time. That said, I couldn’t wait to try to learn every piece of it! Now seeing that I’d realistically put myself in the ‘advanced novice’ skill category as a player, I knew it would be a bit of a challenge, but luckily found the perfect teacher and video lessons to get me there. These lessons come from none other than Justin (JustinGuitar) Sandercoe.
The first video walks you through how to play the iconic opening riffs and the various flavors of it as well as the verses. The notes are pretty straightforward, but get the feel and timing down will be a lifelong journey.
Once you nail down everything else, it’s time to take on learning the most glorious solo that’s ever graced my ears! Justin does an outstanding job of walking through each phrase of the solo – check it out.
