Watch the Vanessa online guitar lesson by Paul Rishell from Dirt Road Blues

We'll finish the breakdown of "Vanessa" here. The second part of this song features a progression in which we play one chord per beat, which can be tricky.
Annie and I recorded this for our second collaborative CD, Moving to the Country (Tone-Cool, 1999). Annie came up with the great mandolin parts, though it stands up well as a solo piece too.
