Here is the fourth piece from the Rockschool 2012-2018 grade 2 electric guitar syllabus. This is a Texas blues piece in the style of Stevie Ray Vaughan and ZZ Top. It's main focus is on shuffle feel , blues licks and palm muting. Try to use a strong picking attack to give the notes a more powerful tone and pay careful attention to the wing feel.

For the recording I used my 2007 Fender HSS Strat through a Boss ME-70 effects pedal straight into my iMac via a Focusrite Saffire 6 USB interface.
