Dennis Gruenling here, and this time as we dig into the 3rd chorus of my “Windy City Shuffle” we really step into the Little Walter bag here. Notice how I use a long trill to build up tension into a longer phrase, and then continue building tension with blues notes and phrases building up to the V chord where it then comes together to release some tension after the IV chord, then back into the I chord at the end. Lots of Little Walter inspired runs and licks, directly from his vocabulary. When you get stuck on a pattern, just slow it down and get it smooth, then you can speed it up slowly.
Grab them A harps and enjoy!!
