Blues E Daddy
November 29, 2013
This is so sweet, especially for those loving old time blues in E. I threw in a couple of lessons…and remember with blues, you don’t just learn and play. You got to feel the blues….let it come out through your playing!
Blues classic written by Roosevelt Sykes (a.k.a. the honeydripper – the guy who looks more like a mobster than a musician above).
Howlin Wolf – 44 Blues – 1954

44 Blues – key of E – finger picking (watch for the 4 to the bar, bending, row switch between chords sub-lessons)
