Hello Folks,

This week we learning a B.B. King rhumba feel tune called "Don't You Want a Man Like Me". It's also the theme for "Woke Up This Morning" which could be the earlier tune but either way the concept of blues rumba is a great idea and most likely a New Orleans innovation. We will learning fingering for this classic blues theme and I also demonstrate some tips for guitar rhythmic accompaniment with the vintage Latin rhythmic chops.
