Guitar Lesson Overview

Here's a guitar lesson for this cool Freddie King song I've always enjoyed playing. It has a nice groovy line that gives the song a certain "theme". This examples shows the default rhythm line. The song is a 12 bar blues, and Freddie mostly plays licks in between the vocal lines through out the song.

I've also included the 2 intro licks Freddy plays before he starts singing. Be sure to listen to the original song, it's a good one!

I'm using my Digitech JamMan in this lesson as a quick way to create that background groove for the 2 intro licks.

Tab

Here is the tab for the main groove.

|-----------------8----10-8----|
|------------8-10---10---------|
|---6--/7-10-------------------|
|-8----------------------------|

would think it's cool to see the lead guitar line broken down a bit, note by note. otherwise, very, very cool!
