Rambling on My Mind

Chords and Rhythm

We're re-issuing one of Corey's most popular lessons with new sheet music, re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Corey: 

This week we will begin learning Robert Johnson's blues classic, "Rambling On My Mind". This is one of the all-time greatest blues tunes ever written and there seem to be a million versions. In this first lesson we focus on the main shuffle riff as well as how it fits in with the slide riff. I want you to take your time with the rhythm and tempo of the tune and check that you are not playing too fast or slow.

I hope that you enjoy this song. See you all next week.
