“Leather Britches” | Norman Blake Style – Intermediate Guitar Lesson with TAB


A lesson on the classic traditional tune “Leather Britches”! This is a really fun tune that is sure to hone your chops and build your speed. There are many great versions of this tune. Two of my favorites are the Doc and Merle Watson version and the Norman Blake and Sam Bush version. This lesson has elements of both versions with a bit of my own flavor added. Add this ripper to your setlist and kick your picking into high gear! This lesson includes the full lesson video, TAB sheet, backing tracks and SoundSlice integration.
