Lesson notes

John Fahey was the founder of his self-described style, christened American-Primitive Guitar. His sound and influence on the next generations are unmistakable. Take A Look At That Baby is one of his earliest pieces, recorded for his second album, Death Chants, Breakdowns and Military Waltzes. It is a simple, ragtime progression in the key of C and not too difficult until you work on speeding it up. It uses the basic alternating bass technique but also really needs the left hand thumb wrap (fretting the 6th string with your left thumb) to be done most accurately.
