Watch the We Fooled Them Again online guitar lesson by Gareth Pearson from Travis, Atkins & Reed Guidebook

"We Fooled Them Again" is a tune I composed in tribute to Chet Atkins. It contains all the additional elements we've been studying, including the new Chet style thumb technique.

Our right-hand picking technique and touch will be cleaner, and we'll add a more precise way to play melodies. There will be embellishments in our left-hand fingering, whether it be with new chords, rocking bars, and new dynamics with hammer-ons and pull-offs. It contains a cool G Mixolydian melodic banjo scale climb and finishes with a Chet style triplet roll.
