Preview Section 2

In this part of the course, we look at the Doc Watson classic Deep River Blues. We use this track as a way to improve our technique and to play a song that sounds great on guitar.

By the end of this part of the course, you will

  • play the chords of the Deep River Blues
  • blend different bass patterns into a single performance
  • bend notes as you fingerpick
  • play the full fingerpicked version of Deep River Blues


Watching this preview enables you to know if this is something that you would like to be able to play. If it is - then great! Seeing the end result will help keep you motivated as you start to break these techniques apart and put the practice in.
