Watch the Congo Square online guitar lesson by Sonny Landreth from Slide Supernatural: Blues

Now let's go down to New Orleans with a minor version of D tuning played over a great second line rhythm. This track is from a live version of "Congo Square" that I recorded with Kenneth Blevins on the drums and David Ranson on the bass. We'll weave in and out of long melodic lines and use plenty of syncopation to get the mojo workin'.

The progression is a basic 12 bar minor blues with a twist, as the IV and V chords are major, although you could keep them as minor if you'd like. I also put in an ascending turnaround that I'll show you in the breakdown.
