Lesson One

Baby’s Coming Home played in the key of C using the traditional alternating bass technique. Jerry Reed’s best known composition Blue Finger follows. This combines a melodic walking bass line with the jazz/blues feeling that is a trademark of Jerry’s sound.

Lesson Two

East Wind played in the key of Am illustrates how a melody can be played with a ragtime piano feel using triad chords. 500 Miles Away From Home is a good example of Jerry’s rock/blues accompaniment technique. Stump Water revolves around the use of a roll technique that mimics the sound of a bluegrass banjo. Just Another Rag concludes this lesson combining the roll technique with an alternating bass.

Lesson Three

Down Home uses four fingers for picking out 3 and 4 melody lines played at the same time creating a blues piano feel! A rhythmic accompaniment for Tennessee Stud follows in dropped D tuning. Jerry’s Breakdown completes the series.
