Watch the Shake That Axe online guitar lesson by Richard Van Bergen from 50 Down Home Blues Licks You MUST Know
Another John Lee Hooker style boogie in open G. We’re capoed to the second fret, so we’re playin’ in A. Everybody from the Rolling Stones to ZZ Top used this one! Although Hooker played very few chord changes in boogie songs, he sometimes played a IV chord, but still with the root as bass note. This lick also contains Hooker’s famous accentuated chord.
