We're re-issuing one of Jerry's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Jerry:
Here's a breakdown of what I play for the first chorus of the solo on Sloppy Drunk. This is a John Lee Williamson song and I use some elements of his playing here. It behooves you to closely study him. His style is the foundation of blues harmonica. I could have replicated his version but just used elements of his playing in our adaptation.
Topics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:
D Harmonica in the Key of A.
Loop 0:01 First Chorus of Solo with Rick (12 bar blues)
Loop 1:06 First Riff from Last Week (I Chord for First 4 Bars)
Loop 1:28 2nd and 3rd Riff Breakdown (IV Chord for Next 2 Bars)
Loop 2:40 Review of First 8 bars (Note: Bars 7 and 8 are Played Slowly at the End)
Loop 3:13 Remaining 4 Bars (V chord, IV chord, and Turnaround)
