John Lee Hooker Video Lesson

I love blues guitar and John Lee Hooker is one of my favourite players. Today I'm sharing a series of video lessons from deltablues on You Tube.

The lessons show you step by step how to play a boogie riff on an A chord.

You'll see that the style requires lots of rhythmic feeling to get a driving groove going. Notice too how the style relies on playing effects around the basic chord to create its distinctive sound. This kind of percussive sounds and implied notes around the basic chords is used by a lot of blues guitarists.

Enjoy the lessons and get to work on your delta groove.
