Watch the Proud Mary online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Rhythm Factory: Texas Blues

I was very young when I heard SRV's version of Mary Had A Little Lamb. I thought it was funny that someone would make a song out of a nursery rhyme! This is a classic lead rhythm example that isn't the exact SRV version. I simplified it a bit so that we can use it in other contexts without having it sound like Mary Had A Little Lamb in a different key. You'll see what I mean. This is also a good way to practice your open position in Em pentatonic scale. You'll get some new licks out of it too!
