Lesson notes

O'Reilly At the Bar is just one of dozens of light-hearted, offbeat songs from the brilliant mind of Dan Hicks. The tune is from his 3rd album, Striking It Rich, which should be in everyone's music library. The song only uses two different chord shapes and the progression should be obvious once you have the chords under your belt.

The lesson includes a detailed look at a percussive comping technique that is really useful for all guitar players, especially those without nearby rhythm sections.
