In this first lesson I'm gonna show you the basic riff, and how to adapt it to fit the chord structure and song form. This song loosely follows an overall 12 bar form but the bars are twice as long, so you could also call it a 24 bar blues. And then the main hook at the end is repeated, which is called a tag.

I'm also gonna show you the intro variation and all the little lead-in licks he uses throughout the song.
