Stormy Monday by T-Bone Walker
Here’s a classic slow blues tune, that has become a “standard” for Blues bands around the world, written by T-Bone Walker in 1947 and covered by Eric Clapton, BB King, and countless others, the most famous of which is probably the Allman Brother’s Band on their “Live at Fillmore East” album from 1971. We will be copying Greg Allman’s vocal performance here. The Allman Brothers did the song in the key of G, which is much easier for us violinists/fiddlers. T-Bone did it in Ab, a much more difficult key for violin.
Sorry! Only All Access Pass members get to view this lesson… but, as a sneak peak I’ll post this video performance from my Blues Violin Course for a tune that is very similar and In-The-Style-Of called “Monday Blues.” Check it out!
