Watch the Boot Mill Blues online guitar lesson by Gary Hoey from Blues Rock Reactor
This is one of my songs, called "Boot Mill Blues". It's a really fun boogie-woogie á la Brian Setzer kind of tune, pedal to the metal, four on the floor. Here I'm playing in D, but I've dropped my low string to match the D string, so it has an open D sound. Then, we'll look at the lead part, using some double-stops in the pentatonic scale, mixing a little bit of the minor and major, going for an almost harmonica type sound.
