Lesson notes

In 1975 Bob Dylan came out with a spectacular album, Blood On The Tracks. It included a bunch of great songs and in this lesson we look at Buckets Of Rain. It is an alternating bass fingerstyle song done in Open D Tuning, capoed to the second fret to put it in the key of E. Most of the picking and chord shapes are very basic but there are a few very tricky slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs, mostly as far as coordinating them with hitting other notes at the same time.
