Old Grimes Guitar Lesson

“Old Grimes” has become a popular bluegrass standard mostly due to Chris Eldridge and Julian Lage’s recent version released on their grammy award winning album Mount Royal. We reached out to Chris and he said it’s a traditional tune that he learned from Jesse Cobb, his old bandmate in the Infamous Stringdusters, who may have learned it from Matt Combs in Nashville. In this bluegrass guitar lesson, I’ll teach you the main guitar melody for “Old Grimes”. After you master the bluegrass guitar break, practice along with the “Old Grimes” backing track.
