Little Walter Style Slow Blues

3rd Chorus Breakdown

We're re-issuing one of Jerry's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Jerry:

This week we're on to the third chorus of "Blue Midnight." Tone, attack, accuracy and attention to phrasing nuances - swells in volume, slow let-up from certain bends - these are the hallmarks of this song.
