Greetings Earth People!

This week in my final BB King lesson we explore many B.B. style lines and ideas. You can mix and match any of these as they are intended to just add to your general blues vocabulary. Also the second chorus of my solo is written out for you. Plenty of ammo to get ideas for a nice B.B. style track for your video. Looking forward to your videos. I'll check them out soon,

Here's my rough cut. God how I love B.B! Thanks for yet more great insights. I was listening to Ray Charles this morning and his May Ann is this structure (and he lifted that riff from T-Bone). Also heard Elmore James playing something v similar but forget the title as I type.

That sounds great Marty. And I love the tone of that Jazzmaster!

Thanks Duke. I think I may try out the Jazzmaster on Lost Mind to see how it sounds for that tune.

Hi Duke, 
Here's my cut at Don't You Want A Man Like Me. I pulled out my old 1960 Jazzmaster for this one so I could get that out of phase sound on the intro. I think it sounds pretty good for this tune. As always, thanks for the great lesson and any feedback.
