We're re-issuing one of Corey's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated sheet music.

From Corey: This week we will begin learning John Henry, one of the most popular traditional tunes ever. This song predates the blues but was sung by many bluesmen. It is a simple tune so make sure that your rhythm is solid and your melody on the slide is clear. Enjoy!
