Texas Flood Song Guide

Pro Player Chapters  Looping  Slow-Mo 

The first step towards learning Texas Flood.

So… you want to learn Texas Flood, but you’re not quite able to “just sit down and learn it”. Where should you start?

When I travel to a new place for the first time, I prepare by studying the map. I learn to visualize the city, to understand it from above, before I have to navigate it from the streets.

The Texas Flood Song Guide will help you do the same. To visualize Texas Flood, to understand it as a song, before you start trying to navigate through it note-by-note. If you want to learn to play Texas Flood, this is a great place to start.

    Why? Because I want to:

    • help you understand what you're hearing

    Rhythm Ideas
    What You'll Learn

    Lesson 5 is all about rhythm guitar. Rhythm guitar and Texas Flood? Sure.

    If you're ever at a blues jam, or if you're ever in a two-guitar band, you'll probably have to play rhythm for Texas Flood, or a song like it.

    So In this lesson I'll show you three different ideas for playing rhythm guitar that "fit" the style of Texas Flood, and don't get in the way of the lead player.
