Hi Folks,

This week we are finishing up "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water" with a lesson on various chord fills and short single string lines to play around the vocal. I demonstrate quite a few aproaches on fills based on very simple chord arpeggios that are easy an d sound really good in the context of old time blues. You should be able to pick these up relatively easy and use them in a variety of tunes.Good things to have in your arsenal for sure.

So let's get those videos and audio examples coming in folks. I really do love hearing your take on things and progress.

Hey Duke! This is such a beautiful little chord solo! I'm not quite smooth enough on it yet, but it's coming along, I think. Hope you think so too! ;-) Bruce
