Jerry Portnoy

Lesson >



Juke - our two man version of Little Walters first hit record. On the original it's two guitars Muddy Waters running the bass line and Jimmy Rogers doing the fills. In the slow chorus lessons I copied Little Walter all the way including a small timing variance that occurs in the second chorus. In our version I play it a bit differently in straight time.

Hi Joe,

I'm playing through an Astatic JT-30 mic and a small one speaker Fender amp (don't remember what model).
