“I’ll Play The Blues For You” is a the title track from a Blues album by Albert King released in 1972. In my verision I follow the changes when soloing but for those who wish to keep it traditional staying in Gm pentatonic would be the best choice. I also spice up the rhythm a little, it’s a personal preference, I like to add my own influence to a song when I perform them.
