This week we are working on Trouble in Mind in a Chicago blues style. I demonstrate a new intro then the Chicago style bass line and a few different ways of playing the bass line rhythm. Then I demonstrate leadlines that work with the rhythm and several lines that will work with the vocal as lead lines and some ideas on soloing on this classic blues.
I am looking forward to hearing your version of this tune.
