Watch the Take Me Home To Tulsa online guitar lesson by Ray Nijenhuis from Western Swing Guitar Guidebook
For this tune, we'll be backing up a I-V-I fiddle tune. What are your options to play behind a soloist when a song only contains two chords like a fiddle tune or a square dance? First of all, you want to keep that "boom-chick-boom-chick" rhythm going like there is no tomorrow. To keep you from getting stuck in the bar chord position, and to prevent you yourself getting bored with the limits of only two chords, here's a study based on the two-chords song "Take Me Back to Tulsa". You'll find all the concepts (and more) in this guidebook combined in this Eldon Shamblin style Western swing rhythm guitar tour de force.
