You’ll love this. Tommy Emmanuel a giving an Acoustic Blues Guitar lesson in the key of E, it’s called Stevie’s Blues, as in Stevie Ray Vaughan.

The chord which he says he’s not overly sure of the name, I’d call a C13, however the Root not is not included, it’s implied. You might also call it an Em11b5 (flat 5) chord. Regardless of what you’d like to call it, it works, the notes are E, B Flat, D, A, all of which come out of a an E Blues scale.
I”m trying to find out what format Guitar Players prefer guitar music written in today. Guitar TAB seems to be the standard these days. I find it very useful for Acoustic Guitar Open Tuning. What do you prefer?
Now this IS interesting. Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin and Roy Harper playing Acoustic Guitars out in the country doing Hangman, the tune that Led Zeppelin did and scared the living daylights out of everyone. It’s from around 1984 and they are playing Ovation Adamas guitars. This is of great historical value (already). Roy Harper is a great British musician who inspired Jimmy Page. Remember the Zeppelin tune Hats of to Roy Harper?
I first heard this tune by Everlast called What it’s like, a few years back when a guitar stdent I had said he wanted to learn it. It’s very simple and that in itself is a great lesson in music. The lesson being is that many players over complicate music, why complicate something just to be clever. I like this tune, it’s a handful of chords, the guitar part is seventy-ish but the vocal line and rhythm is sot of 90’s. It’s a Dm chord at the beginning, do a bit of ear training and work out the rest. Note the slide up when he plays the middle bit.

A week or so back I was standing in sa book shop in Byron Bay and this song came on and I was dumb-struck for a few minutes, I couldn’t leave until it was over. Bob Dylan with his signature harp sound and 12 fret to the body parlor guitar. I am not sure if it has the same affect on people that never grew up with this song. It’s beauitiful in itsrawness, what I like is the story telling lyric which pulls you in. It’s another few chord wonder.
