Watch the Jimmy Reeds Me online guitar lesson by Richard Van Bergen from 50 Down Home Blues Licks You MUST Know
This lick can be used as an intro for a Jimmy Reed or 50's Muddy Waters style slow shuffle. In a standard 12-bar blues progression you can play it from bar 9 when it goes to the V chord. It’s in the key of E. Like on a lot of licks in this video I use my bare fingers, but of course you can use a pick too. I use open strings, bends and chromatics.
