Over the last few years I’ve found a few things that most every blues player can do to up their game just a bit.

None of these require using something new, just approaching what you know a little differently.

      HiGriff, just wondering what gauge strings are you using.
      Looks as though they are easy to bends

      G’morning Griff, Great lesson as always. Can you check the sound file associated with this video? It’s really soft both on your website & on YouTube. I had to boost the volume all the way up to hear what you’re saying & playing. It may be my computer, but everything else on both sites & on my other audio & video files is much louder (ie, “normal”).

      • Bob S.

        So sorry. My bad. Listening to it at 5am via headphones so as not to disturb the family. For some reason the plug connection was faulty & the audio signal was really soft. My apologies if you spent time checking it.
