Lesson Info

In this blues tutorial, Anders Mouridsen will teach you "Smokestack Lightning", by Howlin' Wolf. This is a one-chord blues based around a repeating riff, and after an overview of the song and talking about the gear and tones Anders will break down that main riff. Next up will be the supporting rhythmic line that's played along with the riff; then you'll learn some variations to the main riff. We'll cap it all off with a play along, then you take over in the jam along.
