  1. This is super cool Rick. I realize “space” is a good thing when playing, but I really like how this keeps the fingers moving throughout. Thanks for doing this and posting it.

  2. Bite sized and perfect. When you love someone’s playing and they show you how it’s done…very cool. Many thanks.

  3. Tasteful and classy. Very cool, man. The more guitar players can pick up from New Orleans piano players, the better.

  4. how can do this without even crediting Professor Longhair — isn’t this ‘Big Chief’ slowed down?

  5. Great great great. I got something similar form a Dr John record; i suffered for many hours getting it down. The only comment I can make is how the heck can anyone have given this a thumbs down? Maybe you need to include a cat?

  6. Beautiful – I’ve been working with New Orleans licks & rhythms on piano and you’ve totally got the groove . Thank you πŸ™‚
