We're re-issuing one of Corey's most popular lessons with new sheet music, re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Corey:
In this video we will begin to learn the classic blues song, CC Rider, a staple of the blues songbook. I begin by playing my version of the tune and slowing it down so you can hear what is going on. I also focus on the slide work and the basic lines you will need to play this song. Learn the basic riff with the alternating bass and then you will be ready to add a few embellishments that I will show you all in the coming weeks.
I hope that you enjoy it.
