Orville Johnson: “Salty Dog Blues”
 
Peghead Nation’s fingerstyle blues instructor plays a Mississippi John Hurt–inspired version of the traditional song.
June 3, 2020

 

The traditional song “Salty Dog Blues” is a favorite of blues, bluegrass, and trad jazz musicians. In this video, Peghead Nation blues guitar instructor Orville Johnson plays a Mississippi John Hurt–inspired version, just the kind of thing he teaches in his new Fingerstyle Blues Guitar course, which Peghead Nation launched in September 2016. Fingerstyle Blues Guitar is an extension of Orville’s popular Blues Guitar course, in which he teaches bottleneck slide and blues lead as well as country blues fingerpicking. In his Fingerstyle Blues Guitar course, Orville expands on the songs and techniques he taught in Blues Guitar with songs from the repertoires of Big Bill Broonzy, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb, Mississippi John Hurt, and more.

To learn fingerstyle blues guitar from Orville, enroll in his Fingerstyle Blues Guitar course on Peghead Nation today.
