Watch the Trampin' Down online guitar lesson by David Grissom from Open Road Blues

In my performance of “Trampin’ Down,” I start with the signature lick inspired by Slim Harpo played over the groove without many frills. The second chorus adds in some variation into the rhythm part, adding in an F sharp as the top note and playing some suspension chords. The third chorus builds on the previous two, using higher notes that resolve into a walk-down.
