Eddie Taylor > Bad Boy

Hi Friends, this weeks lesson is on the Eddie Taylor tune "Bad Boy" We learn the introduction then the first two verses where the vocal is. I teach a lot of Eddie's signature riffs and turnaround phrases here. These are classic Chicago blues lines and work well anywhere in the the Chicago blues genre. Next week we work on the solo and other possible soloing ideas in the genre.

Dig in and have fun! Duke

Myself, I get carried away with these hammer-ons. :-) I tend to play too many of them so when I try to follow the tune I'm completely off. lol

hello duke

thank you so much for taking the time to video all these lessons, I have just started on the eddie taylor songs. after reading your intro, it got me listening to some of the old jimmy reed stuff which is great. I never knew that was eddie taylor on guitar. what is that lick he uses in Honest I do? is that a signature eddie taylor lick?

PS I love the sound of your epiphone guitar.
