How to Play Shotgun Blues by Junior Wells

Aug 15, 2018 | Intermediate Harmonica Lessons, Songs

Hello and welcome to this week’s lesson, where I will be showing you how to play the solo from Shotgun Blues by Junior Wells.

You will need a harmonica in the key of E, and we will be playing in 2nd position in the key of B.




Standard 12 Bar Blues

The whole song follows a standard 12 Bar Blues progression and this solo is a particularly well thought-out outline of this classic chord progression.
