Lesson notes

Last Train To Clarksville opens up with a classic guitar lick that serves as a signature riff in the song. The lesson covers strumming through the chord progression and riff using fingers, rather than a pick.

This includes a technique known as a “banjo roll” with the thumb and two fingers. There are muted, syncopated strumming patterns and a couple of ways to play the short bridge sections.
