Lynch Blues > Bass and Main Riff

In this lesson we will begin to learn my song, "Lynch Blues" from Fulton Blues, my most recent album. I chose this tune to give you an idea of how to write a song that has a traditional feel to it. When I wrote this song I was listening to a lot of Ishman Bracey and R.L. Burnside and some of that influence is reflected in the riffs. I suggest you get the bass line down to the point that it is steady and reliable and then concentrate on the riffs.

I hope you enjoy it.

The guitar sounds good here and you are playing comfortably.  Nice job.  You might want to try using brushes or string snaps for a little flavor.  Thanks for sharig!
