Watch the Crosscut Bow online guitar lesson by Richard Van Bergen from 50 Down Home Blues Licks You MUST Know
This last lick in Albert King style has that trademark two-note bend for which he was famous. It can be heard in songs like 'I Get Evil ' and 'Cross-cut Saw'. Eric Clapton wrote Cream’s 'Strange Brew' when he heard these songs! Three different bends are captured in this lick: Two note, whole note and quarter note. We’re playing in the key of A, with a rhumba rhythm.
