Here is a blues with a little more grease on it. Carl and Bernie are the perfect pair to lay down this groove, and I think that you will particularly enjoy playing along with Bernie's authentic second line groove. You'll notice that this blues is stripped down harmonically, not going to the 4 chord in the second bar and hanging on the 5 for the turnaround. You really need to put the feel in your back pocket, and the further back in the beat you can play without actually slowing down or bogging the feel, the funkier it will sound.
