Dry Spell Blues > Main Riff Practice Loop and Variations

For today's lesson we will focus on the basic riff. I will slow it down so we can play along. This is a simple song, so play close attention to your rhythm and tempo.

See you next week.

Enjoy.

Hi Harry --- you sound great!  I love the foot-tapping too --- really makes the groove.

Nice job.  You have a nice touch on the guitar and the tone really comes through.  You have the basic riff down so just practice the rhythm as it seemed that a few times your foot was slightly out of time.  Good job.

Thanks for the kind words Corey. Yes my foot runs amuck a few times, also noticed myself doing something with the slide I was unaware of. I learn a lot just playing the videos back....Notice all kinds of things your unaware of when playing.

Thanks again

Sounds good Harry.  Nice and simple.  I would only say to play just a little bit more behind the beat.
