Watch the T-Bone Runner online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from 30 Blues Intros, Turnarounds, & Endings You MUST Know

This intro is a triple-stops update on T-Bone Walker's classic slow blues intro: a descending series of 9th chords, from I9 to bVII9 to bVI9 to V9. The top voicing on each chord, spelled 9-3-b7 from low to high, is one of my favorites. Notice also the extra half-measure the F9 occupies; this idiosyncratic phrasing is a key part of what gives the T-Bone original its slightly disorienting quality and increases the sense of satisfaction when you finally resolve the E7aug to the I.
