In these eight lessons I'll be teaching you how to play the song "Ghetto Woman" as made famous by the great B.B. King. This song is all about the vibe and features a really cool rhythm guitar part and lots of awesome lead playing. His guitar tone is clean and soaked in reverb, which adds to the dark and mysterious vibe that defines this track.

One of the cool things about a song like this is that the notes themselves are fairly easy to play. The hard part is getting the feel right, and that means that guitar players on any level can be challenged by the song. It's a typical blues song in many ways, but there are a couple of unusual things in the harmony and the orchestration that we'll get into.
