Same Old Blues > Rhythm and Horn Line

Hello Folks,

We are starting off the new year with a great blues song by Little Milton. It' call the "Same Old Blues". It's been covered by Magic Sam and Freddy King and probably many more. It's a classic blues shuffle with a really great guitar intro chorus by Milton. This week we learn the rhythm and the horn line during the vocal which sounds great with double stops on the guitar. It's in Ab which is a great guitar key. Next week we learn Milton's fabulous intro chorus. 

Enjoy!

Duke

Hi Duke,

  Love working on this type of blues. I need more of these grooves in my vocabulary.

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Allan, Good rhythm there. I have one suggestion. For this type of rhythm the tremelo, which I usually like your use of, detracts from the rhythmic punch here. It's better without it for this type of rhythm. good feel though. duke

A killer tune! This one is going to be a lot of fun. I've already started learning some riffs from the Little Milton version, I'm too anxious to wait until next week!

I'd never used that fast triplet rhythm that you showed. I had to slow down the video (I sure love being able to do that!) to see that you play down-up-down for each set of triplets. I have to really concentrate to play it and keep it together. It sounds like you put a little extra emphasis on the first downstroke on each set of triplets to keep the beat upfront, if that makes sense.

Hope you do a track for this one, I might even take a shot at singing on it. :-)

Thanks, Duke!

great tune Duke, I like very much the Magic Sam version, and the freddie king looks quite different, reminds me other songs like someday after a while also played by Freddie King or I need Your love so much by Peter Green, both have dim chords in the progression
