Eight Miles High Guitar Lesson


One of the bands that really helped define the Psychedelic Sound of the Sixties was The Byrds. Their early line up with Roger (Jim) McGuinn, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, and Gene Clark produced a defining song of the era, *Eight Miles High.*The song featured McGuinn’s 12-string Rickenbacker guitar, combined elements influenced by John Coltrane and Ravi Shankar, and really opened up the ears of the musical community. This lesson goes over the chord progression and a foray into improvising in the Dorian mode… definitely a mind-expanding lesson.
