Watch the Killing Part 2 online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 30 Authentic Blues Grooves You MUST Know
In the previous groove we looked at the classic bass and guitar unison part from Howlin' Wolf's classic "Killing Floor". This time we will take a close look at the chordal based riff part. The classic riff outlines the basic I7, IV7, V7 progression using standard voicings that once you get under your fingers, you can use just about anywhere. There have been may remakes of this classic tune but the most notable is Jimi Hendrix. Be sure to check out his version from live at Monterey, it's very different but equally as cool!
