Lesson notes

James River Blues is a basic Bluegrass strumming song that only uses a few chords and fills in some solo parts with fiddle leads. It was released in 2006 on Old Crow Medicine Show’s album Big Iron World. The lesson is presented in the ‘Work It Out’ format, focusing on ear training, and stresses the importance of understanding the relationships between the chords in order to play it in any key.
