Watch the Blood Brother online guitar lesson by Tommy Emmanuel from It's Never Too Late Songbook

I'm going to talk you through "Blood Brother" here. It's a different ball game when I play this song live: my sound guy gives me a wide open reverb, so when I hit the guitar it lets out a loud "thump". We'll just tackle the "bare bones" version of it here, played on a clean acoustic guitar. A couple of notes: My E string is down a whole step to D (drop D tuning), and the tune is in D minor. I'm using a straight pick here, too.
