This week we work on a new chorus I improvised using all the Johnny Watson techniques and riffs I could think of. I demonstrate some of my favorite bends of Johnny's and explain his technique of pulling up and snapping the strings to get that great percussive sound he has. Looking forward to hearing you all playing this style on videos soon.
Topics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:
Loop 2:18 Johnny 'Guitar' Watson Style Slow Blues Example
Loop 3:12 Breakdown of Johnny 'Guitar' Watson's Style
