If you didn’t already know, Robert Johnson was very important in the development and creation of the blues. Tons of his songs have become “blues standards” covered and recreated by thousands of blues artists over the years. Sweet Home Chicago was originally done by Robert Johnson.

In this lesson, we are going to be exploring blues guitar the proper way – by going back to it’s roots!

Sweet Home Chicago has a legendary riff that will get you stomping your foot! But you’ll also learn how to “swing,” and how to play a 12 bar blues.

For any advanced players out there, fast forward to 13:31 I do a fairly note for note version of what Robert Johnson does on the original recording. Johnson shows us a pretty epic turnaround!
