Join Ronnie Shellist for this killer classic 8 bar blues song originally written by Big Bill Broonzy with partial credit to Charles Segar. This blues standard is one of my favorites. For this class you will need a C harmonica as we dive into the amazing 2nd position blues riffs in the introduction, solo portion and ending of the song. Little Walter delivers some of the most interesting and powerful riffs in this song. I break the riffs down note for note with the class discussing his nuanced technique along the way. Listen to Little Walter’s version of the song here. This class also includes 3 backing tracks: normal tempo 8 bar in G, reduced tempo 8 bar in G and a demo practice track of Ronnie playing the solo over the reduced tempo track.
