This phrase was originally an Albert King phrase but Stevie Ray Vaughan made it famous. This is set in context of a standard slow blues in the key of E. If played correctly it sounds very nasty and jazzy and fast all at the same time. It is an intermediate/advanced level phrase.
I purposely focus the teaching on the “first half” of the phrase and leave the ending open for you to decided what suffix will work best for you. As you can see in my demo of the playing in context with an actual blues song, there are so many ways to use this phrase so I did not want to limit you to a certain suffix. I do give several ideas tho for you to draw from as you formulate your own ideas.
