Watch the Boogie-Woogie Blues 2 online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Blues Survival Guide: Rhythm Edition

Another tune I am drawing on here and what was very influential for me is Eric Clapton's version or the Robert Johnson classic "Rambling On My Mind" from the famous John Mayall and The Bluesbreakers record. This record often referred to as the "Beano" record due to the comic book of the same name Clapton is reading on the cover is a high water mark for electric blues. Clapton is in his early 20's on this recording and is amazing, his Les Paul through a Marshall tone was the blueprint for the rock and roll guitar sound. A must have recording.
