That is a hard question to answer. I have several guitars, and for very different reasons I like them all a lot. Just about the same is true for amplifiers, though I don't have...

My favorite is the Roland Street Cube.  I like the fact that you can get a lot of good tones at room volume .. and switch so easy between them.  The sounds isn't as good...

If you are playing strick 4/4 rhythm, it's best to stick close to the straight 4 beats per measure but you can do some 4/4 and imply passing chords and accents in between the beats...

Also Mike, Everyone has slightly different way of playing these tunes. It sounds like Spoons pianist is doing a slightly different turn around. This kind of thing is good ear...

Good start Mike! Actually Spoon (as he was called) sings further behind the beat than anyone and at extremely slow tempos so you have taken on quite a challenge! Ray Charles is the...

Thank you Bruce, The 3 and 4 note chords are best in this context leaving plenty of room for the bass. The less added on notes from the 7th chords when playing a swing tune...

I check out Lester Leaps in a couple of weeks ago, but then realized it was part of the swinging the blues series, so I headed for Lesson 1. The 3 and 4 note chords shown here make...

@MikeCaren: It sounds to me like you got it.  I would only suggest picking out the triad (1-2-3, 1-2-3), each string.  You could resolve on the 5 and it would make a good...

Great Mike, Learning 8/16/32 bar blues is a great introduction to the swing era/tin pan alley songs which lead to a good understanding of the structure of the great American...

Thanks for the comments.  As for getting the timing right, try listening to as much country blues as you can stand.  For me, it was real hard to get the feel of a particular song...
