West Side Chicago Blues Style

All agree that Chicago West Side Blues starts with Otis Rush and “Magic" Sam. This class will cover the seminal recordings of these two giants plus a few others such as Buddy Guy. As well as soloing, we’ll be evaluating intros/endings, chords, strumming patterns, grooves, baselines, horn parts, hooks, etc. In short, we’ll cover and rehearse all the important elements of each song before we have a jam session.
