Watch the Meter Maid online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Blues Architect

Leo Nocentelli, the original guitarist with the Meters, tours on his own as well as with the officially reconstituted "Original Meters." You can hear him stretch out in the key of E on "Funky Miracle," a live track posted on his site, and check out the way he mixes up chord hits and riffs from different registers. (I had never heard this tune until about three months after writing "Meter Maid," and yet they sound curiously similar. Inexplicable.) Visit Leo Nocentelli online at
