@Alex...thanks for posting.  instead of playing eigth notes ("da DA, da DA"...) try playing straight quarter notes  and just throw in an eigth note every now and then.  to do eigth notes every tiime doesn't work.  let me know how that works.

@Corey...here's my video...it's just the bass...I've tried to put the camera the closest I could to my right hand so you can see where I should change to get a better sound...

@daddy ray...yes lowest string to the ground. Yes I knew Robert junior and he had a million different ways to make a beautiful chord. Looking forward to your video. Thanks. What half step down stuff do you mean?

@Corey thanks...I'll upload a video but only with the bass because I'd like if you could check how the sound is going out...still tryin to find the way not to dig in too much on the strings and have at the same time a clear and powerfull steady bass line...by the way...you look much younger and friendlier with the beard shorter...:))

lowest string? to the ground but not by pitch of course..the half step down stuff I have never thought of as a Adim/F...I will post a vid after a while with a few licks I use across some of these changes. that D 7 has an inversion that is very tasty..when I I saw Robert Lockwood heard a ton of great alternatives for this sort of thing. He didn't even swear at me!
