Guitar Slim is the forefather of New Orleans style blues on the guitar. While primarily a lead player, with this example we will combine his lead playing ideas with some added rhythm. This helps us hear what the other instruments would play behind him, while also hearing his signature note choices and licks. Again, this is serving as both a rhythm and strong melody lead line.
