In this series of lessons we are going to take a close look at Pee Wee Crayton's classic 1948 Blues guitar hit, "Blues Ater Hours." We are going to dissect it note by note. My belief is that there are certain things you don't change because you can't improve on them and this is one of those examples. So we are going to learn this tune just the way Pee Wee recorded it way back in 48. I will teach you the way to make it sound like the original version with all the subtlety of the original! Then we are going to have my recording of my recording of it minus me for you to play along with or record onto.
Enjoy! Duke RobillardTopics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:
