Now it's time to play through this whole song up to speed. Remember that the whole song is performed without a click, so that you can push and pull the tempo according to the lyrics and the emotion you're creating. So we're just gonna get a two bar count in, and then we're on our own.

I hope you've had a lot of fun with this classic song. Delta Blues is the roots of all the blues and rock music we have today, so it's great to have an understanding of this style. And apart from that, this song is a great exercise in grooving by yourself, accompanying a singer and expressing strong emotions through your instrument. All of those elements are extremely important in any style of music you play, so have fun with Death Letter, and I'll see you around!
