I hope have all been having fun with The Things I Used To Do and getting some good results from the lessons. This week we are working on the last verse and the guitar obligato although similar, has a few different licks worth learning. Like many great blues guitarists, many seem to play what some may think the same few riffs over and over, but on close inspection they are quite different. But because of an instantly recognizable style we are easily fooled. There are quite a few different things about the final verse of guitar so dig in and let's see some videos!
