Today we look at a fingerpicking piece you may have heard but might not be able to place. It is a song written by another student of Neil's guitar teacher Alan Beilharz, Jim Page. You'll have to watch it for more of that story. It is called Busted Down Around O'Connelly Corners and appeared on the 3rd Doobie album, The Captain And Me. It was originally called The Ivory Salamander and features a couple of intermediate licks over an alternating bass pattern using standard chords.
Wow, this seems much harder than a level 5 song. I'm already floundering at the second bar. "Dust in the Wind" is a walk in the park compared to this. Still, the "Ivory Salamander" is a very nice song, and I'll get it sooner or later.

I have loved this little guitar piece since I was a little girl. I was beyond thrilled when I found your tutorial for it. The story about this piece makes it all the more special. Thanks so much for such an excellent site!
