Lesson notes

Poor Boy Long Ways From Home is a classic John Fahey tune from his earliest days, his first album Blind Joe Death, originally released in 1959. He recorded a few versions over the next few years and this lesson looks at a bit of a composite arrangement with particular attention to creating and adding your own variations. It is done in Open D Tuning (D-A-D-F#-A-D).
