Blues Came to Texas > Run-Through, Chords and Intro

We're re-issuing one of Corey's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Corey:

In this lesson we will start to learn Blind Lemon Jefferson's "Blues Came to Texas" in the key of A. I run through the tune to give you an idea of how it is supposed to sound. I also break down the three chords used in the song and the intro. If you find that keeping a steady bass is difficult, then focus on that first. Once you have that, then you can move on to the other parts of the song. As always, take your time and enjoy. See you next week.

Corey
