This week we'll be breaking down verse one of this slow blues. We'll go over some of the different techniques I'm using in this piece: tongue flutters, intentional slop, glissandos, half step and full step bends, etc, but the main things I want you to begin to grasp from this lesson and from this song in general, is the importance of phrasing, timing, and patience - Don't get over anxious. Play it cool.
