This week we are working on the second and final lesson for Want Ad Blues. We will go over some of the same points but I add in a few new chord voicings and riffs. It's crucial that you realize that there is a lot of intricate subtlety to this type of playing and a casual listener not aware of blues will not likely pick up on. It's a very deep and personal style and the person who considers it too simple just doesn't get the point. So listen hard to the original. It's said that the simplest things can be the hardest to play and in this case it's true. The badass groove here is the all important thing.
I'm looking forward to hearing your take on this one so let's see lots of videos posted. Or just audio if that what you can post.
