Watch the Never Satisfied online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 30 Authentic Blues Grooves You MUST Know
To me Muddy Waters is the king of the blues. His voice, presence, persona, and body of work is the epitome of the blues. "Can't Be Satisfied" is one of his earliest recordings for Chess Records and is a benchmark in the blues. With just guitar and bass in the original recording his presence is mind blowing. This one is a bit difficult if you are not used to playing slide, what I love so much is his use of slide to capture the in between notes that make the blues so powerful. So take your time on this one, it tool me a long time to get it. And I still can't sound like Muddy! On a fun note in the movie "It Might Get Loud" Jimmy Page plays us this tune in one of my favorite scenes.
