Watch the New Kind of Old online guitar lesson by John Hatcher from Fingerstyle Blues Roots

"New Kind of Old" has it's roots deep in 12 bar blues classics like "Kind Hearted Woman Blues" by Robert Johnson, but puts a twist on things with a few smart chord substitutions.

This tune is in A and is based on a shuffle rhythm with dead bass picking throughout with a little alternating bass mixed in to keep you on your toes.

Keep an ear out for a variation of the descending turnaround in A, the 7th chord sounds, and the II V I chord movement.
