Willie and the Hand Jive Johnny Otis

In this series of lessons, Lee Wanner will teach you "Willie and the Hand Jive", by Johnny Otis. Lee will give a synopsis of the song, then talk about the gear and tone. We'll start the playing lessons by learning how to lay down the funky rhythm and the song intro. Next is the verse which adds the IV chord, and the chorus which adds the V chord. Then we'll break down the leads and the main solo. To conclude we'll do a play along, then a jam along.
