Watch the Catch My Drift online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Essentials: Blues Rock Grooves Vol. 2

"Catch My Drift" is based upon Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac tune "Drifting." As any of you who may know me, I am a huge fan of Peter Green's guitar playing. He was the founding member of Fleetwood Mac, and one of the consummate British blues guitar players of the 60s and 70s. Unfortunately, Green suffered from mental issues helped along by drug abuse that destroyed both him, and his career. Green is still alive and living comfortably from what I hear, writing "Black Magic Woman" that became a hit for Carlos Santana. Although Greene does play guitar, he's unfortunately a shadow of his former self. I'm just thankful the man is still alive and we have is early recordings to be inspired by!
