If you're a musician in need of some lessons, there's no better way to learn than with MusicRadar's so-called "Tuition" instructions.

Whether you're looking for help with your voice, bass, electric guitar, drums, guitar effects, piano, Logic Pro or production techniques, Music Radar is here to show you the way.

British guitarist Albert Lee is world-renowned for his fingerstyle and picking techniques. He's won Guitar Player magazine's Best Country Guitarist award five times in a row and Eric Clapton has called him "the greatest guitarist in the world." Albert Lee has also recorded with Emmylou Harris, Eddie Van Halen, Bo Diddley, Eric Clapton and many others. Right here, he demonstrates his dazzling skills for you to suck up and learn.

This video tutorial will show you how to play rhythm guitar for that authentic country blues feel. Albert demonstrates his basic rhythm guitar style, influenced by country greats such as Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed. To get to grips with any of Albert's licks (even lead), understanding hybrid picking (pick and fingers) is essential. Concentrate on keeping your two fingers together so that there is no separation between notes.
