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

This rhythm pattern in E is in the style of Eddy Taylor. He played guitar for Jimmy Reed and can be heared on all the hit records like 'Big Boss Man'and 'Bright Lights, Big City'. His accompaniment is a major part of Reed’s down- home sound. In this lick we play two guitar parts in one. To get that lazy Jimmy Reed feel, it’s important to play a fraction behind the beat. Can’t play this one with a pick!
