Jim plays 'Baby Please Don't Go By Lightnin' Hopkins

This is a great lesson to get into the feel and cool style of Lightnin's music. It's not too advanced, but highlights some of his tricks that can be integrated with all your blues in E. Play Lightnin ' Hopkins style blues guitar.

I never get tired of playing Lightnin' Hopkins. His complex songs are challenging (such as 'Mojo Hand') and his slow blues in E are laid back but very, very powerful if done properly. You can find another video where I play 'Woman Called Mary' in E and you'll see what I mean.
