8th Verse Breakdown

Hey Sonic Junction - Rick Estrin back here with verse eight of my version of the lesser known James Cotton classic, "Lightnin". This verse is very simple, but potentially very effective. In this lesson is different in that, we'll be almost entirely focused on two holes - nine and ten blow. Once you become familiar with the mechanics of executing the bends on these notes, you'll have one more sure fire, attention grabber at your disposal.

Have fun, and I'll see you next week.
