Watch the St. Louis Blues Melody online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from 1-2-3 Jazz Guitar
The last song of the course is St. Louis Blues. It was written by W.C. Handy and first published in 1914. It is the first Blues song to be a hit and the song that inspired the Fox Trot. As always, I will play the straight melody to start, the 2nd time through I will add rhythmic variation and vibrato and for the 3rd time through I add some bends and slides.
