Thanks Rick. I love the focus on the little things. The in-between bits seem to give a lot of character while keeping the groove. Loving this series!

Thanks Eric - I’m glad you’re diggin it. I really believe the licks alone don’t sound “official“ if people overlook the details.

I love this Rick! Sounds like I should be able to apply some stuff from the Sonny Boy's Groove lesson. Excited!

Glad you like it, Eric! Stylistically, it’s all Sonnyboy, so yes, a lot of the same feel will apply to both pieces. Have fun with it and let me know how you’re doing.

What do we want?

Patience!

When do we want it?

Now!

Just kidding. Thanks for addressing this topic. I am trying to play less and less, where I can.

I frickin' love this song and Robert can hardly keep his pleasure contained. Me too! I'm smiling with him. I followed this series when it first came out now it's time to try again. Love yer work, Rick!

This is the coolest song ever (well, one of  'em anyway). I am loving the forensic detail with what is going on with the hands and tongue. Thanks Rick!

"We don't want to be singing straight." True! Thanks for these tips Corey. They are very useful! Cheers!

Thanks Eric.  I would also add that if we sing with too much variation then it loses its appeal...gets worn out.
