Hey Andre! Great job on improving those bends, and memorizing the licks! And, just like Larry said - REALLY nice tongue flutter! Larry's also correct in suggesting that you play the rhythm chords mo softly. Overal, great job!

Hi Rick !! sometimes to me it s valuable to understand the meaning of the English ... so , what do you mean when you say that on the 1 ; you worrying the 3 hole bent and you say it s a "vocal sound" ?? what do you mean by Vocal sound ??

André

Rick Estrin May 30, 2019

Hi Andre, by "worrying" the note, I mean using bends as an effect. The way I'm starting the verse on that third hole and using the bends and "worrying" the note to produce an effect that's reminiscent of the human voice - that is what I mean by "vocal" sound. I hope that helps.

There's a CD series called Chicago The Blues Today - Volume 2 of that series has some songs by the Jimmy Cotton Blues Quartet. Get that! Get The Blues Never Die, by Otis Spann. Get Johnny Young's Chicago Blues Band on Arhoolie records. Those'll be a great place to start
