As requested I will present on John Lee Hooker. We'll look at
"Boogie Chillen". This has classic J.L. Hooker riffs and the
back beat rhythm leads naturally to a look at "Shake Your Hips"
(Slim Harpo, Rolling Stones) and "La Grange" (ZZ top). It
will probably lead to other songs as well in true blues fashion.
As always we will play the songs we study and we'll play other
blues songs as well. "How Long Blues", "Stormy Monday',
our list of jammers is getting big and I'll bring lyric and chord
sheets for all.
For John Lee, well he is in open G tuning for "Boogie Chillen",
and that is very handy for the back beat groove. However if
you prefer to play in standard tuning just be ready to play in the
key of G.
Usual location, call Lonny for details and let him know you're
coming. 250 592-3501, $40.
