I dig this tune and I hope you will too.  Pay attention here to the bass and the rhythm of the song before jumping in.  Blind Blake influenced cats like John Jackson, Blind Boy Fuller and countless other blues players.  Hit me back and let me know where you are with this...

Hi Mike,

This is probably going to be my next tune. Do you have the full tab that I can print out? I am trying to follow the transitions through the lessons and piece them together.

@ Mars...thanks for posting the video.  Glad to know that you dig the lesson.  I don't have any offers right now in your area...stay tuned!

This tune is great.  It reminds me of tunes that I learned in Woody Mann seminars by Rev. Gary Davis and others.  First position chords.  It's the bass, licks and "feel" that takes time to assimilate.  Can't wait for the additional fills around the chords.


Playing Clinton, NJ area this Summer?

Here's a nice image of Blind Blake.  His guitar looks a bit like the parlor guitar Corey plays.

Hi Corey .. really like this tune .. it's all to true!  I'm enjoying getting the chords down .. and have tried to start learning that first lick.  

What would be a great second lesson for me is a really slow breakdown of the main 8 or 16 bars of the song .. that covers both the melody and bass.
