Lesson Info

In this set of lessons, Mike Olekshy will teach you "Take Me to the River", by Al Green. After setting up the song lessons in an introduction and talking about the gear and tones, Mike will detail the main riff in the intro of the tune. Then we're into a break down of the verse riff, which elaborates on the intro riff. Next up are the chords in the chorus, followed by the change-up in the bridge. We'll end with a play along, and a jam along.
