This verse is the simplest verse in the piece, but please don't use that as an excuse to skim over it - Playing blues is so much more than just the notes. Use this lesson to help get the groove and feel firmly embedded in your mind and body. Also, take advantage of the fact that a simple verse like this one affords you more opportunity to notice the details of what's being played - For example, see if you can detect subtle differences in the ways I shape the fourth hole draw. Small things can make a big difference in the overall effect.
