Long Train Running - Doobie Brothers Song Lessons

Many people won't know the name of this song but they will know the riff :) it's an all time guitar classic and great fun to play.

This song uses many of the techniques you'll learn in my Funk Guitar Course, so be sure to check that out and learn particularly the loose wrist and counts for Funk!

Remember the best way to get these up tempo grooves under your fingers is to practice them VERY slowly and only speed up when you have it 100% right. If you practice it wrong it will stay wrong and be harder to get right. Slow and smooth becomes fast in the end! I promise you :)
