Watch the Slow Blu Solo 1 online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Slide Shop

Elmore James recorded two of the great archetypal slide songs, "Dust My Broom" and "The Sky Is Crying." As with many
first-generation postwar guitarists, one of the best things about James is his vocal asides in between licks (Buddy Guy comes
to mind as well - check out "Stone Crazy" ). In this solo, I've opted instead for some open-position fills to round things
out, in a typical example of what scholars like to refer to as "call-and-response" phrasing.
