As his many fans and students have learned, Toby Walker has a solid command of all aspects of blues fingerpicking - and he knows how to teach it, too. In this lesson he explores a song that he learned personally from the Mississippi Delta blues guitarist and singer James "Son" Thomas. 

"Beefsteak When I'm Hungry" is a funky blues in the key of E. As always, Toby shows the bare bones of the tune, then adds the touches that make this rendition of the song unique. He includes a "choking" right hand strum, an unusual B7 chord, bass walk-ups, a cool ending and a variety of licks. Intermediate guitarists will have fun learning this great blues tune, along with techniques that you can incorporate into any blues tune you play.
