 I like this riff and intro perfectly. Here I start at about half volume or so, and then turn my guitar's volume to full on the rhythm.

Hi Ian --- nice work and thanks for posting.   For the boogie woogie --- I think Paul goes from the V right back to the I --- it's a slightly different form from most 12 bar blues.

 I made a few minor mistakes, but I may or may not do another take soon.

I like how this song switches between two distinct versions of a 12-bar blues: The first section in the key of Em with a straight-eights rumba feel, and then a key change to F# major and a shuffle rhythm. I think this song has 2 distinct personalities in one.

Yeah, I love the two sections. It's like getting to play two awesome songs in one. Have you tried palm muting the rhumba section? You've got the right idea, but muting those low strings gives it a really cool snappy sound.

That's good Ian, let me point out when you do the decending chords E/B G dim the next chord should be B7 before going back to E7. Keep up the good work! Duke

Here you are Duke. I changed the last pair of D notes into D9 (first one) and D13 (second one) chords for fun. I also got a new electric, and was able to combine both pickups to get Lowell Fulson's tone.

Hi Ian, Sounds good. Now try and work with the track so you can build up to the tempo of the song. Good start in it. Duke

Hi Ian, That's the ticket, maybe relax the tempo a notch but that's the feel alright. Duke

I'm sorry for the weird, awkward distortion near the end of the B section. I think it was part of the webcam itself.

Hi Ian, Good start! On the right hand you need to loosen up and let it be more limp to get the swing feel. Watch and listen to me play the rhythm. Getting that feel has to do with a loose ficking of the wrist as you execute it to get the swing feel. Watch my rhythm and you'll get the idea. Now on the bridge the second chord is D7 you had an Ab in there on the low E string. You can use the Ab for one beat as a quick passing tone. You're off to a good start, keep it up! Duke
