Watch the Walkin Man Blues 6 online guitar lesson by Carl Verheyen from S.W.A.T. Blues

Primarily on the G and B strings, these lines are derived from the pedal steel vocabulary as well as being directly influenced by "Honky Tonk Women" by the Rolling Stones. There are also jazz chords thrown into the mix for an interesting combination of jazz and rock harmony. This combination is what I call Swamp Guitar. I originally applied it to my rhythm guitar vocabulary but found it more solo-istic as I developed it more.
