We are on the last lesson for "Little Wheel" this week and I reitterate many of the points about this song and John Lee Hooker's style. My most important advise is to really get the basic feel and groove down first before concentrating on the vocal. When you do sing it remember that you can change (in the sense of where the lyrics are) anytime you want. It may be hard to feel the freedom of putting the vocal anywhere you like but believe me, once you get comfortable with it, it becomes a great release and a lot of fun. Try to absorb John Lee's music and just feel it instead of being to thoughtful about where to come in. Remember, this s should feel like freedom not a planned effort to "appear" free. Let lose and let the blues come out naturally.
