Memphis Minnie Ebook

In this ebook I teach six songs in Memphis Minnie's style, with tab (19 pages) and lessonvideo's (3 hours).




1- Minnie's Blues

The easiest song and you could consider it as preparation for the other lessons in open G.
All verses are transcribed and explained in the accompagning video's.

2- When The Levee Breaks

Is an exciting piece to play.  It looks difficult but it's not really that hard,there are no complicated fingerings but it's right hand speed that does the trick.
All the verses have been tabbed out and the video's explain and demonstrate every lick.
Open G tuning

4- Drunken Barrelhouse Blues

A typical Memphis Minnie tune in the key of G.  I added a few licks of other songs and players, like eg Blind Blake, as well.  The only difficult part is to get it up to speed.

5- What's The Matter With The Mill

A rocking version of Memphis Minnie's most covered song (even Muddy Waters did a version).

Key of D

6- Joliet Bound

How fast can you go?  Minnie's version is even 10 seconds faster.  Joe does the vocals and Minnie plays the lead part in Open G tuning.  I play Minnie's part and added a solo.

Not a difficult arrangement, lotsa repeats, but you'll have to get it up to speed and sing with it. I wrote the lyrics of the first verse under the tab for easy learning.
