Mist - John Butler

The only available footage of Butler playing Mist live is here.

This song was recorded for the Sunrise over Sea album. He often played it as an introduction during a solo set for the songs 'That's Life' and 'Hello'.


Check out his live versions here.

'That's Life' Live at Moe's Alley, Santa Cruz, CA, 2002

'Mist' Live at the Thebarton, SA, 2003 (poor quality)


This lesson includes full hand-written tablature for the album version and an extensive and detailed video breakdown of each lick (1hr 8min, with tab embedded).


You can check out a sample of the full PDF tab below.

Full Lesson Preview (without complete tab):

Get your own digital copy of either just the tablature or the tablature and the full 1hr 8min video lesson by making a contribution through PayPal below. You can then instantly download the files for yourself without the hassle of subscriptions, creating accounts or the special players that other lesson websites make you use. You can play the video file however you wish, though I recommend using VLC which allows you to easily adjust speed playback (with far more control than most built-in lesson players) and also lets you use the chapters embedded in the video.
