Watch the Lonesome Day Blues online guitar lesson by Ton van Bergeijk from Fingerstyle Blues & Boogie Guidebook

This is a blues classic originally played by a 30's blues pianist named Jesse James. I have combined it with the bass line of the 60's hit record by Joe Jones, "You Talk Too Much".

I must admit: I do like experimenting with combinations that may seem far apart. Probably due to my blues harp background, I opted here for the classic Hammy Nixon ending that found its way into so many 30's blues recordings.
