Hey friends! Here’s two video lessons I’ve made teaching you how to play the Bob Dylan classic “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right”. My first video teaches a strum-only version, while the second goes deep on fingerstyle & Travis picking technique – which is what Bob uses in his original album version. Both lessons include both beginner-friendly (as much as is possible) variations of the more difficult chords & techniques, while also going deep into advanced topics for those who are interested. I hope you enjoy!
