Watch the Weehawken online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from New School Fingerstyle
When I'd been playing guitar for about three or four years, I saw some distant relative playing blues piano in the living room at a family party. I can't remember who it was, just that he could keep a walking bass line going while he improvised blues licks on top. "Now, that's cool," I thought. And I spent the next several years of my life trying to figure out how to do that on the guitar, usually while I was supposed to be reading Thucydides or taking out the trash.
