Watch the Mississippi Blues 9 online guitar lesson by Tim Sparks from Post-Modern Fingerstyle Blues

This mid-point chorus features a series of breaks, with opportunities to chime in with variations and lead lines. It's also a nice change at this point in the tune because we stray from a traditional fingerstyle arrangement and come unlocked from the strict 12-bar form. We're also back to "performing" the whole band here, with rhythm-section parts answered one after the next by a fiery lick.
