This week I decided to teach one of the first tunes I ever learned for the guitar, Daley's Reel. Bryan Sutton played this tune on his "Bluegrass Guitar" album, and his version is what I'm teaching today. Bryan does a great job of translating fiddle tunes to the guitar, so I thought it would be invaluable for you to learn his phrasing and pick stroke technique. Another highlight this week is the addition of practice tracks to the lessons. If you scroll to the bottom of the page you will find a video of me playing rhythm guitar at slow and full tempo speeds. This way you can practice the tune and build speed on it before trying it out in a jam. Enjoy!
