The Iceman cometh! Albert Collins is who I speak of. Albert is one of my all time faves. His tunes were lowdown funky blues. Check out songs like Get To Gettin' or Master Charge where this riff comes from. We're in the key of Bb here to mix it up. I tweaked this rhythm riff to give you two of my favorite 7th chord inversions. Experiment with this one. Use one or both of the small chord shapes. It doesn't matter but, notice how we've created a melody by using our chord shapes. Good stuff here.
