What a Fool Believes - fingerstyle guitar lesson - Doobie Brothers

What a Fool Believes - video lesson

What a Fool Believes, (made famous by Doobie Brothers, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins...) - fingerstyle guitar arrangement - 95 min. video lesson available!

Guitarists: It is finally here, an hour and 35 minute widescreen video lesson for my solo guitar arrangement of "What a Fool Believes" (available either by DVD or download), see performance clip.

Whether you're into fingerstyle, jazz or just love this song, this lesson is for you! If I was to show only the notes I play, the lesson would probably only take 15-20 minutes...So why do my lessons have such a long running time? Because through specific song arrangements I teach solo guitar arranging in general. While I go over every note of the arrangement, I also branch out to many side topics that make any arrangement come alive - right hand, rhythm, harmony, dynamics, improvisation, etc. Email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
