Lesson notes

Cocaine Blues is another Rev. Gary Davis tune in a style that he called "old fashioned picking", meaning steady alternating bass notes and not too complex in his eyes. It is one of his most covered songs, having been played by the likes of Dave Van Ronk and Jackson Browne for example. This lesson presents a simple way of accompanying the verse and chorus as well as more complicated variations and a short instrumental solo.
