Try practicing with the shuffle strum we worked on Tuesday and then with the little fun licks (rocking chords and walk-ups) that we learned.
Attached are a couple of recordings that may be helpful.
Also attached is a very bad scan of some blues notes showing the rocking chords notes (Michael calls it "bending" the chord) and the shuffle strum.
Remember ----- for another GOLD STAR - write your own 12 bar blues song. You name it. Melody and Evelyn can write the flat tire blues. Or it could be the No snow blues, or the Is it still February Blues. Whatever it is that is giving you the blues. Turn it into music to chase the blues away. And remember ……. have fun with the riffs and strum and ….. play the blues.
See you next week.
P.S. One of my favorite blues guys, Keb Mo, is coming to the Mt Baker theater this month. If you can't catch his show you might look up some of his music. He known as a kind of "happy" blues guy. I See Love is attached for your enjoyment.
