New Orleans Blues
The blues of New Orleans is most often rooted in the signature rhythms played by drums and piano. The grooves and "second line" rhythms in this style are true to the region all their own and are a mixture of many styles of music. The coming together of these styles and it's unique groove (rooted in the "clave") account for a blues style that is both unique and fun to play. While not often associated with guitar, I am going to show you in this tutorial how I would approach this style in a live situation. We will be taking licks and ideas from other instruments and applying them to the guitar to try and mock this style.
