Pickin' The Blues

Play Lightnin' Hopkins in Key Of "A"

Lightnin’ Hopkins played often in the keys of E and A.  In another lesson we covered the key of E, so here I’ll show you some of his licks in the key of A.  We’ll use Sunny Lowdown’s “Christmas Eve Blues” as a model. 

VIDEO – LIGHTNIN’ HOPKINS In Key of “A”

The  first video below is Sunny Lowdown playing “Christmas Eve Blues”. While he’s playing in the “A” positioning like the lesson, his guitar is tuned a half step down to G#.  Below the Sunny Lowdown video is Lightnin’ Hopkins playing “Miss Glory Be” in the key of “A”.  See if you can pick up what he’s doing using what you just learned in this lesson.
