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

We're gonna slow it all down with a song I wrote in memory of my friend and hero Johnny Winter. He was a big fan of Jimi Hendrix, so for this tune I wanted to cop some of his vibe too.

This is a 12 bar blues in open G, which is DGDGBD from low to high. We'll zoom in on getting more of a vocal quality to the sound with a steady vibrato and dig deep into phrasing by using whole notes instead of a whole lot of notes. This is an opportunity to create space in your soloing—it sounds cliche but it's true—sometimes what you don't play is as important as what you do play.
