Watch the King James online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Focus On: Standard Tuning Slide

This tune is a good example of how to get a lot out of music out of very little material. The entire chorus is played in our one box position, with just a couple of one-fret adjustments to address the changes on the IV and V chord. Be sure to check out some original Elmore James recordings to hear how it’s done, and observe how his imaginative phrasing, kickass tone and sheer conviction that carry the day.
