Watch the Rumba Blues 4 online guitar lesson by Carl Verheyen from S.W.A.T. Blues

Albert King is my favorite all-time blues player. He's influenced so many people, from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan. I'm lucky to have seen him play many times when I was a kid, and one last time as an adult. He never disappointed, always a larger than life presence on the stage. Here I'll try to distill his style down to the essentials.
