Lesson notes

Loggins & Messina created a bunch of fun songs and Your Mama Don’t Dance is probably their best known. It follows a classic 12-bar blues formula with a memorable riff and some great licks and rhythm patterns.

This lesson covers playing it with your fingers or a pick, or even both using the hidden pick trick, as well as rhythm patterns with different feels- rock, shuffle, swing, and even boogie.

There is a section on playing lead with a modified blues scale, and even a part combining it all into a solo version. This lesson may be complete information overload but try to absorb it in small doses over an extended period of time.
