Watch the Performance Studies online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Blues Guitar 7: Fingerstyle Approaches

In this section you will look at some authentic old school songs. Getting these down will not be easy, but once you do, you will have a good grasp on this style!

TIP! A great way to stay excited about practicing something is if it starts to actually sound like the lesson. This is accomplished by getting down the technique, working it up to speed and so on. BUT, it is also important to try and get as close as you can to the sound and the tone of the instructor's guitar. They have been dialing in their tone for years so it makes sense to try and emulate what they are doing. Take your time and tweak on your amp - listen to what their guitar sounds like and get yours as close to that as you can. This will actually make your playing sound better to your ear and give you more confidence!
