Jinx Blues > Main Body Breakdown

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 lesson we learn Jinx Blues by Son House. This song is very similar to Screamin and Hollerin the Blues, Moon Going Down and other Charlie Patton and Willie Brown tunes. The key to playing this tune is in the rhythm so take your time. We will focus on singing later!

Good luck.
