“Wild Bill Jones” – Billy Strings | Intermediate Guitar Lesson with TAB


A lesson on my arrangement of the classic tune “Wild Bill Jones”. This arrangement is inspired by the Billy Strings version which is played out of capo 3 in the key of Fm. This tune is a great guitar ‘showcase’ tune combining lead and rhythm elements. Learn the nuances of modern bluegrass guitar and add this awesome solo acoustic tune to your repertoire!
