[Chorus 1, Bars 1–12] This first chorus starts with some classic Albert King style string bending. Be sure to warm up before attempting this amount of bending. To help you achieve authentic phrasing, all of the fingerings and pick and finger strokes are notated. Take time to study these, as plucking hard with the second finger and digging in hard with down picks are key components of the style. Bar 10 features the classic SRV punctuation. To get this sound, lightly fret the notes as indicated and strike the strings with a down pick. Press down on the strings as you slide your hand down the neck.
