Watch the See See Baby: Ex. 3a online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Kings of Blues & Rock Vol. 8: Freddie King

This excerpt is a medium tempo, swinging shuffle played in the key of Bb, and begins in classic "B.B." style with a Bb on the high E string followed by a quick slide up to Bb on the B string. Bar 2 incorporates some nice twists on eighth-note triplets while bars 4 and 6 are driven by chromatically ascending phrases. Bar 5 includes another subtle touch in the half-step bend and release of the ninth, C, as the phrase descends back to the root note, Bb.
