    This might help: http://breakdownway.com/lesson/Jorma-Death-Dont-Have-No-Mercy That's on my list of fingerpicking tunes to learn as well. Hesitation Blues is first.

    Sultans of Swing (all guitar bits)
    The solo to Shocking Blue's Venus

    This as a precursor to my 2018 guitar goals.

    I seem to be veering away from my electrics. Trying to get Country Roads down pat with a full Travis approach, using my Santa Cruz OM. And I also have been playing my open D tuned Martin a good bit, and in particular Diving Duck Blues, based on the latest version on the Taj Mo album. Trying to gain a command over the note locations in open D, as opposed to just playing what sounds good.

    Classic Rock band:
    Speed and accuracy for the solos in Van Halen's Jump and Europe's Final Countdown - pretty much there.

    Personal:
    RJ's 32-20 and Queen of Spades on acoustic

    Various slick double stop licks on the Tele.

    If I ever get 5 minutes to myself this week I wanted to learn Blitzen Trapper Furr. We'll see if it happens, I promised my wife that we would play together this weekend (she plays cello and I try to play mandolin when we do this) I don't know as of yet what we will be working on.

    This is my first year back playing guitar after a 32 year layoff.
    I was determined to do fingerstyle this time. Didn't have the patience for it as a teenager.

    This week:
    Sultans of Swing - working in order, pretty solid for the first parts, now getting into the first solo.
    We Belong to You
