How to Play `Green Onions´ by Booker T & the M G 's - Blues Guitar Lesson


How’s it going guys. This is John McClennan
and I’m here with guitarcontrol.com,
bringing you this video lesson.

What we’re looking at today is just a real
easy way of walking a little bass part
through the blues. This riff is from the song
“Green Onions” which was Booker Talk & the M.G.s
One of the things that I just love about this track
is it grooves so hard. I just hear that ride cymbol
and it’s just so — it makes me feel so good.
It’s a great tune to practice with and work on your feel.

A real easy part here. What we’re going to do is
we’re going to start at the 1st fret, F, and you’re
going to play down, down-up all in the same note, one,
two-and and then you play the 4th fret, A flat,
and then the 1st fret, B flat. So it’s like this.
That’s all you do for the one chord. And then you
move up one string, this time starting on B flat,
F string, 1st fret. Then back home. Finally, so
what that is here, 3, 3, 3, 6, 3. And you’re back
at the top again and you start all over.

Again, it’s the 12 barre blues. You just repeat it.
When you get to the end, you go back to the top.

Practice that, work on your muting, listen to that ride
cymbol and play along with the track. One, two-and, three,
four; one, two-and, three, four. And we’ll see you in the
next lesson. Check out some Steve Cropper there. All right.
