Corey,

Thanks for sharing the blues. I really enjoy your lessons. Trying to start a practice routine of acoustic everyday, along with my electric. Have a great day of music.

@alex...you got it right in the second video...the only thing I would add is to use a slightly lighter touch.

@Corey....here's my feedback....Do you think I should pick less the high strings compared to the low ones?

I've listen the album too....Underground is very nice!! :)

Hello Corey, thanks for the bass technique at the end, exactly what i was searching ! Actually i was muting with my palm always on the strings !

By the way i've download your album in mp3 format on CD Baby.It's really a good album !! It's nice to hear the song we work here in a new rendition like Catfish or Devil Got my woman. I love the "That will never happen no more" with the vocal intervention "à la Blind Blake" ;) And your voice sound better in Bb like the original. You have a very high vocal range like the falsetto on the C# in this Kindhearted woman, Wow ! 

I bough the CD version when you came to France for a concert and hope i had a dedicace :)
