Gypsy Woman > Intro & First Chorus

Howdy Folks,

This week we are starting a new tune, Muddy Waters "Gypsy Woman." It's a perfect example of delta blues amplified to become the beginnings of Chicago Blues. lots of familiar chords and riffs but, of course with there own individual twist, which gives each song It's character. I have to laugh at those who say blues is all the same thing and anyone can play it. It's for certain that those with that attitude can't! The feel and nuance of every blues song is something unique, unless of course you play it like those who don't feel it study it and live it. Most good musicians will tell you, sometimes the hardest thing to play is the simplest. So this tune is a prime example of the pure and simple blues. Lets dig in and see how deep we can go!

Enjoy, Duke

Excuse me to everyone, I'm not American or British, I'm not black, I can not speak English, I can not even play guitar in the right way ... but this is the best way to learn the blues guitar I've ever seen. Of course this is my first and last video!!

Cheers

Giorgio

Hey Duke

Accompanying bass lines is not my strong point. Its kind of hit and miss. The D7 in the 1st does allow for this however, i am more inclined to play the D7 at the 5 fret where you can still fake the bass a bit with the root and F#, not as clean i admit.

Everyone else - come on people, show what's you got! 

Cheers

Steve
