Pony Blues

Intro Breakdown

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 lesson we will learn the intro to the tune as I play it. I want to wait until next week to start working with the slide so that we can build a strong foundation before we try and add to the structure. I encourage you to check out the Son House and Charlie Patton version (and others) of the tune so you can see how YOU want to approach it.

Happy playing!

Hi Corey.  i was notified you were doing 'pony blues' and signed up.  This is one of my personal favorites and have for a long while enjoyed your interpretation of it (theer is an online clip of you at the StarHill Music Hall in 2001).  Working on the intro lesson! thanks
