Now it's time to play through this whole song up to speed with the band. Make sure to come in right, and then after that you just try not to think too much. Just let yourself disappear in the music and have some fun with it.

I hope you've had a ton of fun with this classic song. It's a great example of a one chord blues song, showing that just because it's simple doesn't mean it has to be easy or boring. This song is so mysterious and the rhythmic confusion adds to that along with the lyrics and the dark sounding voice of Howlin' Wolf. If it didn't work musically they would have probably just done another take. So have fun with Smokestack Lightning, and thanks for watching!
