Corey Harris Lesson >

Jinx Blues > Slide and Slap Technique

We're re-issuing one of Corey's most popular lessons with new sheet music, re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Corey: 

In this second lesson we review what we learned last time. We also discuss where to use the slide on the tune and proper dampening technique to minimize noise. Special attention is given to slap technique and the importance of keeping a loose wrist while playing.

Good luck.
