Same Old Blues > Opening Chorus

Hi Folks,

This week we are learning Little Milton's opening chorus for "Same Old Blues." It's a classic chorus filled with some of the best of Milton's early playing. There are phrases here that are amongst my all time favorites in blues guitar and I have quoted from this chorus often during my career. If you master this chorus you will have some great licks in your arsenal! It's also cool that it's in A flat, my favorite key.

Good luck working on it and send me some videos please. I really enjoy seeing you all progress.

Enjoy,

Duke
