Muddy Waters Bottleneck Lesson

So this is the final video that shows the continuation between Charlie Patton's Banty Rooster Blues, Robert Johnson's Travelling Riverside Blues, and this Muddy Waters tune. Each came one after the other so it's an interesting way to understand the aural tradition of this music.

The song's a fun one to play. Just remember to keep things bouncy...that means controlling the note lengths (staccatos, etc) well! BUT, as always, start slow and make sure everything's solid before you crank up the metronome.
