This week we are starting on one of the coolest blues tunes of the 40s. I'm talking about Charles Brown's first big blues hit Driftin' Blues featuring Johnny Moore playing some of the silkiest blues guitar I've ever heard. I love the guitar on this recording and we will to sound the the man himself on this one.
First off, as always we start with a 4/4 rhythm guitar part with simple changes so you get the groove quickly.
