Fingerstyle Blues in C: “When He Calls Me,” Part 1
In this lesson you'll learn an arrangement of the gospel song "When He Calls Me," which Orville learned from the great old-time country blues musician/singer Howard Armstrong. This arrangement is in the key of C and uses just C, F, and G chords. Orville shows you how to play an important version of the F chord, fingered with the thumb over the neck on the bass string and the index finger on the top two strings, but without using a barre. This shape will make it easy to go back and forth between C and F, which happens a lot in "When He Calls Me." In the first part of the lesson, you'll learn how to play the verse of "When He Calls Me."
