In this tutorial I'm gonna teach you how to play the classic blues song "Why I Sing The Blues", as made famous by B.B. King. This song is eight and a half minutes long and it contains everything you want in a B.B. King song- powerful lyrics, a rockin' band, and loads of great guitar playing both from the rhythm guitar player and from B.B. himself.

There are 5 guitar solos in this song, and we're gonna breakdown every single note. We're also gonna breakdown all the cool and super funky rhythm parts that are played in the background throughout the whole track. We're gonna talk about what gear and tone and much more. This song is in 4/4 and the quarter note equals 117 bpm, so let's get to it!
