@Corey...you're right...it's to fast....first and second lick are preatty difficoult for me...especially the transition from first to second....also that solo on the V...I can't find BLJ version on youtube....

Just a question which is not about this tune...Is it TRUE that you're coming to Sardinia on August to plat at Nureci Blues Festival? :))

@Alex...thanks for posting a video.  I would suggest that you go back and listen more closely to how the first and second licks are played in tempo.  Slow down to really get the right rhythm of these two licks and then bring up to speed, but not too fast either.  The rest sounds good.  Try listening not only to my version but to Blind Lemon Jefferson too.  Find time to practice!

@Corey...here's my video...It's just a hit to say that I'm still here...I haven't practiced a lot..What I'm workin on is the position of the right hand tryin to mute the strings properly..I'm liing a lot to play on the fret and move behind when I play the bass notes...:)
