Watch the West Coast Waggin' online guitar lesson by Brooks Robertson from Essentials: Boom-Chick Fingerstyle Etudes
"West Coast Waggin'" is an original piece I wrote specifically for this course. It was great fun thinking up something that sounded good, was enjoyable to play, while not being too difficult (although as you'll see it isn't terribly easy either). Keeping in line with all the tunes included in this course, it utilizes the alternating bass technique as much as possible. This arrangement is in the key of A minor and will introduce a "Banjo Roll" technique that works for some nice breaks and fills within the tune, not to mention it is a good technique to become familiar with. It opens with a simple, single string line, very slow and rubato and transitions into a groovy thumb picking tune that's a blast to play. Enjoy!
