Watch the Swamp Thing online guitar lesson by Richard Van Bergen from 50 Down Home Blues Licks You MUST Know

This is a swampy down-home rhythm groove based on an E7 chord. There’s a low E string played on every beat. Especially useful when you perform solo, but will fit a band setting too. This lick contains a brush played with the index finger and a little lick with a ringin’ high E string on top of it for some variation. With a little tremolo added, this one’s a real swampy thang!
