Special Rider Blues > Run-Through and Main Section

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 first lesson we begin learning Special Rider Blues by Skip James. This is one of my favorite tunes to play. When I played for Ali Farka Toure years ago, he was surprised that it wasn't from Mali! Later on in the lesson I will demonstrate how he influenced my playing of this tune. For now, we will focus on the basic beginning riffs. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks.

Corey
