The Spent Money Blues On Electric With Different Words

I had a request from the forum for The Spent Money Blues played on electric instead of acoustic guitar…

So I played it, but then I did some other fun stuff, enjoy.

    Hi Griff,

    I really enjoyed these tunes. Any chance of you tabing out the first one. I’d ask for all three but I’m not greedy. I am working on your Acoustic Blues guitar unleashed course but would love to learn these songs.

    Thanks Griff, well done. Any chance you would be willing to put this in a downloadable format so we can have this as we work through the course? Thanks!

    Hi Griff
    I bought the acoustic Spent Money Blues and have watched/listened to it a few times, have yet to try playing it but it looks doable with plenty of practice. It’s a beautiful number and I love the way you have included all those great licks and rhythms. It’s a perfect foundation piece for learning to play that style and although I normally use a pick on both Strat and acoustic I’m really looking forward to trying out the fingers approach. A great lesson – THANKS!

    Fun stuff! I’m just finishing up DVD 1 on ABGU and looking forward to the first tune – it’s in E, too!
    Finding the acoustic to be a bit tougher than I thought it would be…so I’m glad this tune transfers well to the electric!
    Thanks for another cool lesson!

    As and aside, I found the right hand finger picking vs pick and fingers very interesting. I’m looking to the acoustic courses to learn both then use it on slide. One day I will be proficient at the basics.
    As always,
    Thank you Griff

    Hi. Griff. I am approaching my 72nd birthday and have a library shelf of your lessons. I got this one and am going through it. I like this video as it is great for all the little nuances of blues in one little package.If players use this they are well on there the way to blues fun playing. I used to play well but after all your courses. I am very pleased with what I have accomplished. As an older man, I am never lonely with my music. Thanks for a lot of years.

        Glad to see I am not the only “mature” blues fan here. I’ll be 74 in July, still very active in ministry, and blues guitar is my “private” place. I can watch Griff’s videos, play along and lose myself for hours. Thanks Griff, we really appreciate you. God bless.

    Hi Griff.
    So good to give a lot of blues for listening, learning and enjoying. Incredible that you have been able to include som many great licks and so much technique and furthermore make it accessable both for acoustic and electric. I am primarily going for acoustic but love this kind of lessons that you ccan use anywhere. Please come up with some more acoustic courses.
    All the best
