Watch the Harriet The Chariot online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from New School Fingerstyle

Once I got this tune off the ground, I realized I'd nicked the bass line from "Blue Thumb" by fingerstyle giant Jerry Reed. But then, he nicked it from about twenty years worth of swing-era jazz, so what the heck. I ran it by John Knowles while we were teaching a workshop in San Francisco, and since the melody and the B section were totally different, he thought I was in the clear. There's been no word from the guitar police, so I guess he's right.
