Watch the Wrapped Up: Ex. 3a online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Kings of Blues & Rock Vol. 2: Albert King

One of Albert King's greatest blues recordings is his funky classic, "Wrapped Up in Love Again," from his Years Gone By album. This excerpt is played in the key of A and all of the lines are based on A minor pentatonic (A C D E G; very brief reference to A major pentatonic in bar 7 with the presence of F#, the sixth). The phrases are deceptively simple; comprehending them is one thing, executing them with absolute conviction and intonation is another, so be sure to take your time with each successive phrase.
