Watch the Sweet Angel: Ex. 3a online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Kings of Blues & Rock Vol. 4: B.B. King

B.B. King set the standard for modern electric slow blues, and his recording of "Sweet Little Angel" from his classic album "Live at the Regal" is widely regarded as essential listening. These next two examples are played in this style, played in the key of Db and earmarked by an aggressive attack and a slow, wide vibrato. This example represents the first six bars of the 12-bar form. When playing this solo, strive for sustained intensity along with a fluid feel.
