Mean Mother Blues > Chords and Melody

We're re-issuing one of Chris's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Chris: 

Hello All! This week we’ll be starting off a series on the Mean Mother Blues, a fun-to-play song that Julian Lage and I recorded on our album, Avalon. As per usual, this first lesson will introduce the chords and melody. Pretty straightforward. You’ll want to make sure that as you play rhythm that you maintain a sense of forward momentum. That leaning just a little bit forward on the beat is part of what makes bluegrass bluegrass!
