Blues on a Friday Afternoon in August, Part 4

This installment of Blues on a Friday Afternoon in August, the 4th of this series, is made up of notes from pattern 1 of the Eb pentatonic scale, way up in the 11th position. The notes are nice and high and have somewhat of a piercing sound to them...

Mance Lipscomb lays down a very cool groove on his rendition of "Alcohol Blues." Sweet vocals and very, very clean guitar lines. This would easily translate to a modern, electric blues groove.

 
Today's blues history lesson has Son House singing and playing "Death Letter Blues." The power in this performance speaks for itself.
