4- Tell Me Baby

Key of E

Lightnin' Hopkins recorded this song on his 'rediscovery' album in 1959.  It has many of his trademark licks and I show in great detail how to integrate the vocals with the guitar accompaniment.  This song really unlocks his style.

5- Tell Me Pretty Mama

Key of A
Based on a Lightnin' Hopkins tune, great right hand workout.

6- How Long Has It Been

Key of E, standard tuning
Lightnin' Hopkins plays this moving song in the documentary film "The Blues According Lightnin' Hopkins".  It has a unique structure and not that hard to play.
Two pages of tab.  I transcribed the first verse, the variation in the second and the two solo's.  The other  verses are the same with minor variations which are shown in the video.  Lyrics provided and for the first verse written under the tab for ease of learning.

Key of E, standard tuning. 
A great Lightnin' Hopkins tune.  Fully transcribed and with lyrics written under the tab.

8- My Starter Won't Start This Morning

Key of E, standard tuning. 
Based on a rare live recording.  I transcribed the intro, first verse and the two solo's.  The other verses are very similar the the first one but I show and explain them during the videolesson.

9- Late in the Evening

Key of E, standard tuning but tuned down a half step. One of Lightnin's raw blues from the mid 50ies.  In the lesson I play unamplified.  The full song is transcribed with lyrics written under the tab.
