Ocean (2012 Studio Version)

Fast Picking Patterns

John Butler

This is a lesson of the fast picking patterns in John Butler's 2012 studio version of Ocean, from 5:08 to 5:38. The song is played in open C tuning with a capo on the fourth fret in a triplet feel.

This fingerpicking lesson includes full hand-written tablature for this section and an extensive and detailed video breakdown of each lick (1hr 20min, with tab embedded).


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

Get your own digital copy of the tablature and the full 1hr 20min 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).

Contributing is quick and easy and will help me fund more lessons! If you don't have a credit card (or have no money), contact me.
