Watch the Turning Home online guitar lesson by John Knowles, C.G.P. from Fingerstyle Journals
You've probably noticed that I like to take the music apart and then put it back together. My dad was a preacher, so I had plenty of opportunity to watch the music director rehearse the choir. He would say, "Let me hear the tenors... now everybody." Then I realized I could hear the parts better on Sunday. Lesson learned.
A few years ago, I played "Turning Home" for Tommy Emmanuel and he asked me to include it in our Christmas show. I had several days to reconstruct it before we got on the bus. I relied on the learning tips I've just shared with you. And I came up with the intro and ending during that tour.
