This verse begins with a figure I lifted directly from Cotton. Around bar number five, it transitions into a cute little teaser on the 3 draw, probably inspired by Jr Wells. Then the verse gets darker and more ominous sounding as it returns to the I chord and moves toward resolution.
This verse and this set of lessons in general, is going to be particularly useful for learning where and how to apply the tools of textural and tonal contrast.
Next week we'll address this verse from the V chord on out.
