A James Burton-Style Hot Country Lick

This week I've filmed a short country lesson, in the style of one of my favourite players, the great James Burton. He started out playing with Ricky Nelson in the 50s and went on to fill the shoes of Scotty Moore in Elvis' band throughout the 70s. He has also played guitar on records by many of my favourite artists including Gram Parsons, Townes Van Zandt and Elvis Costello. Check out the video here.
