Watch the Minor Blues online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Blues Survival Guide: Rhythm Edition

Here is a classic minor blues with a rhumba feel. This exercise is a take off on the Kenny Burrell jazz classic "Chitlins Con Carne" released in 1963 on the Blue Note label. Oddly enough his version is a standard blues using dom7 chords. But the song quickly became a standard with blues artists after Junior Wells covered it on the fantastic Hoodoo Man Blues record where they made it a minor blues. It's important to note that as jazzers may play it differently! A great note, this Junior Wells recoding was also Buddy Guy's debut recording. The song has been covered by many artists including a slower version by Stevie Ray Vaughn. We can also here the influence of this tune on Peter Green's "Black Magic Woman" as well as Santana's version. Another great thing about the tune is that it is an instrumental, these are not often found in blues. So on a practical level they are great to break up a set and to give the singer a break!
