Sonnyboy's Groove

First Verse Breakdown

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

In this week's lesson, we'll tackle the first whole verse of Sonny Boy's Groove. This verse alternates between variations on a simple riff and rhythm chords.

The entire verse is played on the first 4 holes and most of it is on the first 3 holes! We'll be working with some bends on the 3rd hole but primarily this week's all about rhythm and tone!
