Watch the Take It Easy Baby online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Blues Guitar Fakebook: Rhythm Vol. 2

"Take It Easy Baby" is a basically Magic Sam's classic "Easy Baby". Magic Sam was a great singer/guitarist and blues legend. His version of "Sweet Home Chicago", along with Robert Johnson's original (there's that name again!), are considered seminal. The Magic Sam version is the one we hear the most.

Although I don't show it in this course, do me a favor and check out Magic Sam playing his tune "Looking Good" on YouTube. He's playing Earl Hooker's guitar (It has his name on it), so it's often wrongly labeled as Earl Hooker. This performance may be one of the greatest live performance ever captured on film!
