Stormy Monday Blues by T-Bone Walker

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! Consider taking the whole course if this interests you. See more here.

    Hi Geoff,, love having the long tracks! Tons of great ideas. Of course I’m not reading the music but that guitar lead is great for hearing new ideas. Thanks for doing it. Also I did not know that a 13th is basically a 6th. Could have figured it out but never thought of it. So I learned something: I don’t have to be scared when I see a 13th chord. Love your improved site.

      Thanks Patsy! I’m working hard on it! I like this lesson and tracks too. The new jam-along track I actually was listening to the Allman Bros. band recording as I played each instrument, so it is exactly the same length and tempo!
