Watch the T-Bone's Choice Cuts: 2 online guitar lesson by David Blacker from Swing Blues Survival Guide: Rhythm

Here again, we have a vamp that uses a half-step approach, but this time it's a half-step slide down. Sliding chords are another characteristic T-Bone rhythmic approach.

The intro 9th chord is a really unique voicing using the A, D, G & B strings with the 3rd in the bass. You hear this voicing all over T-Bone's playing, and we'll really dig into it when we get to the "T-Bone's Weather Report" segment.
