Hi Friends,

This month we have a very special guest helping with my lessons. The master blues guitarist Monster Mike Welch is teaching us the classic original Otis Rush version of All Your Love (I Miss Loving). As always, we start with the rhythm guitar. Mike shows us in detail the entire rhythm guitar part that is played through out the song which consists of single note low string riffs and chords.

This will be an informative month of lessons so dig in folks!

Enjoy,

Duke

Hi Steve, Very good playing. I want to point out one thing when you are playing the lead slide up part. There is a note thtat I believe is the open G that is wrong in your version. I would like to suggest that you go over Mike's lesson again and try it at a slower pace so you seee where the wrong note is. The song is generally at a slower tempo anyway and it will give you a deeper perspective of the part and the groove if you take your time plaing it.Thanks, Duke

Hi Duke and Mike,

  I must admit it took me awhile to find that open G in my playing. I finally figured I had let an open string hammer on affect this part. I had been doing it wrong for so long that it had just crept into my muscle memory. I use those kind of open string grace notes when I'm doing a Tommy Shannon type bass part. Since I also play bass I let that creep into my playing sometimes. Sometimes for the better and sometimes not. Its a technique that you can only do in certain keys like E or A.  F# would not be one of those keys.

  Thanks for all you do here and I hope your shoulder gets back to A1 shape.

Steve

I agree on all counts Bruce, Peter was the best of the British blues guitarists. And of course Otis smokes everyone! Duke

By the way, Hugh Flint, the drummer on the "Beano" version of "All My Love", is a friend of mine. So I can pass along any questions to him that folks might have regarding that version of Mayall's band. He was also with them when Peter Green first joined the band. He told me that Peter was quite hesitant at first, but improved very quickly. I personally prefer Peter's playing to Eric's, because it's not quite as perfect as Eric's playing. To me, Peter's playing is much more deeply emotional and involving...perhaps even haunting. But still, both pale in comparison to Otis Rush, in my humble opinion.

I'll .l have to check out Peter Green I've been hooked on Johnny Winter and Stevie for so long that I need to branch out and check out some new players but I've also been hooked on  Duke and Ronnie earl because they have that trail off technique that no one seems to have quite like them and Mike Welch is awesome as well he's gotta a great style and does some excellent BB.

I don't have a bad word to say about Clapton - not only was he my earliest "lead guitar" influence, but a huge percentage of my music taste is directly traceable to a couple Guitar Player interviews he did back in the day where he brought up ALL the cool stuff (Muddy, Little Walter, Freddy King Sings, Ray Charles Live, of course Otis and Buddy). 

Peter's playing had a vulnerability to it that's really moving, though, and he was probably deeper in the tradition than Eric was (actually, that's a tough call - Eric knows the tradition as well as anyone, but Peter probably could have fit in better in the West Side of Chicago). My favorite Peter Green playing is the early Fleetwood Mac before Kirwan joined - Peter had stepped out of Clapton's shadow and was exploring the deep blues as well as anyone. The later Mac records are great, too, but that early stuff is my favorite.

It's funny; I didn't hear Peter until I'd been playing for more than ten years and someone told me I sounded a little like him. When I heard him, I got it (in terms of style, not quality, anyway; he was better) - he was a guy who started out under the spell of Eric Clapton and loved B.B. King and Otis Rush as much as I do.

Jerry - check out the Fleetwood Mac album Mr. Wonderful. It's my favorite.

Bruce Dumes
Bruce Dumes Jun 11, 2015

You have great taste, Monster Mike. Mr. Wonderful is definitely the best, though the two albums they recorded in Chicago with Otis Spann, Willie Dixon, Shakey Horton, J. T. Brown, Buddy Guy (I assume it's Buddy -- he's credited as "Guitar Buddy"), Honeyboy Edwards and S. P. Leary are really great too. WIth players like that, how could you go wrong? ;-)  

Great to hear your thoughts on these players!

Hi Mike and Duke,

What a great tune! I jumped the gun a little and did the rhythms and the signature head. I still need to iron out a good shuffle solo and work on the vocals. My extra bits tend to lean toward the John Mayall / Eric Clapton "Beano"" version,

Thanks,

Steve

Not sure why the video won't work. Its a mp4 version. It works fine in Windows 7on my lenova.

Nice! Yeah, what Duke said about that ringing open G (not the nicest note in the key of F#!) But the approach is good, and I like the way you're combining the different versions into your own thing. I also like the volume knob tremolo there - I might have to steal that for that part some times!

Steve H
Steve H Jun 15, 2015

I learned this one so long ago its probably morphed into something else warts and all.

Hey everybody, I just wanted to say hi and thank Duke and all of you for having me. I'm new to the whole instructional video thing, but I hope you get something out of these lessons.

it was fantastic Mike I totally enjoyed it, you are such a great musician,maybe you can join Duke  and the gang in teaching lessons on Sonic junction that would be great.

Duke Robillard
Duke Robillard Jun 08, 2015

Hi Jerry, Your getting there. Just keep on preacticing it and try really thinking about the groove. You have all the notes correct. Also a big part o  f the rhythm has to do with muting the strings with your right palm. It creates a big part of the stacato rthymic effect. keep up the good work! Duke 

Jerry ford
Jerry ford Jun 07, 2015

Awsome,I always loved this song, from otis, stevie and eric,they all sound fantastic, I wonder if Duke and Mike have a recorded version?

Monster Mike Welch
Monster Mike Welch Jun 08, 2015

I haven't recorded it; as much as Otis is one of my biggest influences both vocally and on guitar, I've never covered one of his tunes on record. I always thought it would be fun to do some of the Cobra-era Otis tunes with Duke; many of them have Otis and Ike Turner BOTH playing lead guitar, and Duke's take on Ike's crazy playing is pretty great. 

Monster Mike Welch
Monster Mike Welch Jun 08, 2015

Also - one of the things I love about the Eric and Stevie versions is how much of themselves they brought to the table when covering it; Clapton streamlined that intro into a powerful, easily recognizable riff the same way he did with Robert Johnson songs, and Stevie just burst at the seams with raw energy, alternating the rhythm and lead parts so it sounded like he was playing them at the same time. It's a good reminder that once you know these songs - and both Clapton and Vaughan KNEW the Otis version - it's open to interpretation and your individual voice.

I like how this song switches between two distinct versions of a 12-bar blues: The first section in the key of Em with a straight-eights rumba feel, and then a key change to F# major and a shuffle rhythm. I think this song has 2 distinct personalities in one.

 

Monster Mike Welch
Monster Mike Welch Jun 08, 2015

Yeah, I love the two sections. It's like getting to play two awesome songs in one. Have you tried palm muting the rhumba section? You've got the right idea, but muting those low strings gives it a really cool snappy sound. 

Duke Robillard
Duke Robillard Jun 05, 2015

Thanks Steve, yes Otis is fabulous and Mike is the best practitioner of his style I know. i was lucky enough to get to meet and play with Otis at the 1990 Chicago blues festival in a tribute to T-Bone Walker. Duke

Monster Mike Welch

I think there's a recording of that set out there somewhere...

Absolutely, I used to watch him as the master of ceremonies at the Johnny D's Blues Jam playing with Mark, Brad and Bruce :-D

Hello Duke and Monster Mike! I'm so excited about working on this song. It's been on my todo list for decades! ;-) I first heard this back on that Blue Horizon collection with Double Trouble, another one of my favorite Otis tunes, that collected all his Cobra sides. 

Here's my unperfected-so-far take on the lesson. Thanks for it!

Bruce

Nice work, Bruce! (Also, LOVE the Rick 325 and Duo Jet back there...) I notice you're using all downstrokes on that little 16th note skip; have you tried alternating just that one bit? It might be a little easier on your wrist!

Bruce Dumes
Bruce Dumes Jun 09, 2015

Thanks for noticing the guitars, Mike!  Next time you are in Los Angeles, look me know and I'll show you my guitar room.  ;-)  

You're right that I often default to downstrokes. I've been trying to break myself of that habit, so thanks a lot for pointing it out! I'm still relatively new at doing lead guitar work (~ 1.5 years) but Duke's lessons have been unbelievably helpful and inspiring.

So thanks again for pointing that out; I'll work on that! Can't wait for the rest of the lesson. 

Bruce Dumes
Bruce Dumes Jun 11, 2015

Hi Mike -- you were so right about using the upstroke on the skip! It not only makes it easier to play; it make the phrasing work better. I just have to remind myself to do it until it becomes habitual. Thanks again!

Monster Mike Welch
Monster Mike Welch Jun 11, 2015

Yeah, it's one thing playing simpler parts with all downstrokes, but that sixteenth note goes by FAST.
