Watch the Got The Key online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Blues Guitar Fakebook: Rhythm Vol. 1

I'm always a fan of blues tunes that don't follow the standard 12-bar form. "Got the Key" does just that. This example is taken from the tune "Key to the Highway" as often heard by Freddie King and Eric Clapton. On the first pass, I'll play some basic open chord ideas. On the second pass, I'll use some more delta blues sounding ideas still using the "open" style shapes I used in the first chorus. This is a great tune to call out at the jam, so get to work on this one!
