Now it's time to play through this whole song up to speed. Remember to listen to the vocal and the slide guitar for when to change chords. And when you play this song by yourself or with your band you're the one that makes that call, which can take a little practice as well. Here it goes!

I hope you've had a ton of fun learning this truly classic song. To me, it exemplifies the history of a whole style of music, and it's super fun to explore. And whether you play rock, jazz or any type of blues, learning this cool version of it will benefit your playing greatly. There are so many universal lessons to learn from this song- For example that driving the groove is not just the drummers job, it's everybody's and since this song is driven by the guitar it's the perfect exercise in that. It also teaches you to listen to the band leader whether that's yourself or some else and whether that's a singer or an instrument. It's good to pay attention to what you're doing and playing, but there's always something going on that everybody in the band needs to listen to. In this case it's the singer and the slide guitar, but it could be anything in other musical contexts. Have fun with it!
