@Corey...thanks...I love this tune expecially when you add the sound of the feet that works as a drum behind the melody...:)...I've seen this in a very beautifull video I found on...

SWEET turnaround Duke!  Definitely going to add that to my bag of tricks.  Kind of has a Hideaway type of feel.

Thanks for the lesson. I love playing this Chicago stuff in E. The minor variations on such simple stuff is very cool. I wish Little Walter had recorded more guitar parts like the...

@Alex...yes when you playing the melody I can hear that second string.  Try tilting your slide a little bit so that it only touches the string that you are picking....

Thanks for the reply, Duke.  What's your preference regarding the bass player's line when you are playing a Jimmy Reed style groove like the one on this example? It would be...

Corey...thanks!! :) Just a question...when you say that I'm hitting also other strings you mean also when I'm just playin the melody? In general  think it' always my same...

Good question Mario, obviously it depends on the song and the players. Soimetimes doubling the line is cool like Fuzz jones did with the 70s muddy Waters Band but often the older...

Hi Duke, great stuff!   Regarding the bassline at the beginning of the lesson, what approach do you like a bass player to follow so it complements what you do?  Do you...

@Alex...thanks for posting video.  I think you should try changing how you hold the neck so that your thumb is behind it and not gripping it.  Also keep working on...

@Corey....I tried the slowest I could...It's the melody line...just to show if  I'm catching the right notes..Is it better now the way I'm holding the slide?..I found that is...

Hi Jerry, While I won't pretend that I can play all of this great song well, I can kind of play most of it okay with the exception of the quick back and forth phrase that Sonny Boy...

That's helpful, Jerry.  Thanks.  I'm gonna revisit the lessons, as well as work on some melodies on the low end of the harp to get comfortable nailing the bends, before...

Hi Alex, Great job! You're got the feeling and the phrasing happening! Now my only suggesting is that you only use that 9th chord in the position I demonstrated it in. I haven't...
