    The world's greatest blues singer, John Lee Hooker reached legendary status with his deep, weathered voice and distinctive chugging rhythms. His influence spread to an entire generation of blues-tinged rockers, including The Rolling Stones and The Doors. Hooker's music is a lesson in deep blues, and here he revisits some of his most familiar material, including Boom Boom and his biggest hit, I'm in the Mood. Filled with frisky, guitar-driven boogies and heartsick ballads, this is the blues at its very best! Songs: It Serves Me Right to Suffer, One Bourbon One Scotch One Beer, I'll Never Get Out of These Blues Alive, Roll Me Like You Roll a Wagon Wheel, Boom Boom, I'm in the Mood, Look at What You Did to My Life, Chicken and Gravy, We're Gonna Do the Shout.

    I said hey mister bartender come in here!
    I want another drink and I want it now.
    My baby she's gone, she's been gone tonight,
    I aint seen my girl since the night before last.
    I wanna get drunk, get her off of my mind.
    I wanna a bourbon, one scotch and one beer.

    And then I sat there, Drinking,
    Gettin high, mellow, knocked out, feelin good.
    And after a while, I looked on the wall,
    At the old clock.
    By that time it was 11:30.
    Gettin i little late
    I looked down at the bar, at the bartender.
    I said, Hey!
    What do you want?
    One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer.

    Well my baby's gone, she's been gone tonight.

    One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer.

    And I saty there, I was drinking,
    Getting stoned, and dupe dupe
    Getting a little buzy in the head,
    And after a while, I looked on the wall again,
    And by that time, lees cold, for alcohol.
    Then I looked down at the bar, at the bartender.
    I said, Hey Mr. Bartender!
    What do you want this time?
    One bourbon, one scotch and one beer.

    Abridged Script

    Here’s a blues classic that I have received requests to learn from 16 different people so I have decided to take a closer look at how John Lee Hooker played this song on the occasions where he played it entirely unaccompanied.

    Researching several different recordings, the first thing that I noticed was that when he did play it solo he simply stuck to the one chord – E7. What is interesting to me is that any time he had other musicians accompany him on the song, they failed to keep the sequence this pure and couldn’t help play basslines, chords, riffs or licks that at least implied the odd change up to the A7 chord.

    So, the first thing to say about this song is that It is not about chords or even really about fancy licks – it is all about rhythm and feel. Let’s look at the intro.

    The first lick starts with a slide from 2-4 on the G string. Then the D note at fret three on the B string then back down the same slide with a hint of a pull-off to the open string at the end of it, then E at fret 2 on the D string, open D and back to the E. In keeping with the call and response them e of early blues, we answer this lick with a bass line that goes. Open E up to G at fret 3 on the same string, open A and back to the open E.

    Of course, you can do all this with a plectrum, but, John Lee Hooker very much used thumb and fingers to play guitar so I would encourage you to experiment with this if you want to get close to the sound and feel of his style.

    The next lick starts on the E at fret 2 on the D string via the open G string to A at fret 2 on the G string, back to G and then E D E again on fret two of the D string. Follow each of these licks with the same bass lick. The next lick is a slight variation on the first lick – so, instead of the slide we use a bend at fret three on the B string then off to open B before concluding with the E D E same as the first lick.

    This is followed again by the same bass line lick and then the fourth line is a repeat of the second line. So that whole intro in slow time and at something like full tempo.
    Once the vocals start we have the same basic lick repeated no less than 16 times, once in response to each vocal line.

    (sings) Boom boom , boom boom! I’m gonna shoot you right down.. Right off of your feet.. Take you home with me..

    This starts with the D at fret three on the B string then open B then before bending the A at fret two on the G string up and hit the top string or top and second string like this..
    Then it’s back to working the A at fret 2 on the G string which we bend up, release and pull-off all in one very smooth motion.

    Unless you have large hands like old John Lee had, then this is extremely hard to play exactly like he did. My advice is to find a way to play something like it, in a way that suits your fingers and then listen carefully to the original recordings and gradually work at emulating that amazing freestyle feel that he had.

    We’ll continue exploring this song in the next lesson in this series. Meanwhile, I’ll leave you to practice this with the health warning that, if you are not used to using your fingers, give them time to recover between each practice session or you will soon get some pretty mean blisters!

    JOHN LEE HOOKER - BAD LIKE JESSE JAMES

    5:22

    Born near Clarksdale, Mississippi on August 22, 1917 to a sharecropping family, John Lee Hooker's earliest musical influence came from his stepfather, Will Moore. By the early 1940's Hooker had moved north to Detroit by way of Memphis and Cincinnati. Hooker found work as a janitor in the auto factories, and at night, like many other transplants from the rural Delta, he entertained friends and neighbors by playing at house parties. He was discovered by record storeowner Elmer Barbee who took him to Bernard Besman, who was a producer, record distributor and owner of Sensation Records, Besman leased some of his early Hooker recordings to Modern Records. Among Hooker's first recordings in 1948, Boogie Chillen became a number one jukebox hit for Modern and his first million seller. This was soon followed by an even bigger hit with I'm In The Mood and other classic recordings including Crawling Kingsnake and Hobo Blues. Another surge in his career took place with the release of more than 100 songs on Vee Jay Records during the 1950's and 1960's.

    When the young bohemian audiences of the 1960's discovered Hooker along with other blues originators, he and various he and others made a brief return to folk blues. Young British artist such as the Animals, John Mayall, and the Yardbirds introduced Hooker's sound to the new and eager audiences whose admiration and influence helped build Hooker to superstar status in the mid - 60's England. By 1970 he had moved to California and worked on several projects with rock musicians, notably Van Morrison and Canned Heat. Canned Heat modeled their sound after Hooker's boggie and collaborated with him on several albums and tours.

    During the late 1970's and much of the 1980's, Hooker toured the U.S. and Europe steadily but grew disenchanted with recording, through his appearance in the Blues Brothers movie resulted in a heightened profile. Then, in 1989, The Healer was released to critical acclaim and sales in excess of a million copies. Today the The King Of The Boggie is enjoying the most successful period of his extensive career. In the past ten years Hooker's influence has contributed to a booming interest in the blues and, notably, its acceptance by the music industry as a commercially viable entity.

    Hooker's career has been a series a highlights and special events since the release of The Healer. In addition to recording his on albums Mr. Lucky, Boom Boom, Chill Out, and Don't Look Back for Pointblank / Virgin, he contributed to recordings by B.B. King, Branford Marsalis, Van Morrison, and Big Head Todd and the Monsters and portrayed the title role in Pete Townshend's 1989 epic, The Iron Man.

    His influence on younger generations has been documented on television with features on Showtime and a special edition of the BBC's 'Late Show' as well as appearances on The Tonight Show and Late Night With David Letterman among many others. John Lee was invited to perform The Rolling Stones and guest Eric Clapton for their national television broadcast during The Stones' 1989 Steel Wheels tour. In 1990, many musical greats paid tribute to John Lee Hooker with a performance at Madison Square Garden. Joining him on some or all of these special occasions were artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Ry Cooder, Joe Cocker, Huey Newton, Carlos Santana, Robert Clay, Mick Fleetwood, Al Cooper, Johnny Winter, John Hammond, and the late Albert Collins and Willie Dixon.

    Hooker's 1991 induction into the Rock n' Roll Hall Of Fame was fitting for the man who has influenced countless fans and musicians who have in turn influenced many more. Honors continue, with recent inductions into Los Angeles' Rock Walk, The Bammies Walk Of Fame in San Francisco, and, in 1997, a star in the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

    John Lee's style has always been unique, even among other performers of the real deep blues, few of whom remain with us today. While retaining that foundation he has simultaneously broken new ground musically and commercially. At the age of 80, John Lee Hooker received his third and fourth Grammy Awards, for Best Traditional Blues Recording (Don't Look Back) and for Best Pop Collaboration for the song Don't Look Back which Hooker recorded with his long time friend Van Morrison. This Friendship and others are celebrated on Hooker's newest Pointblank / Virgin album, The Best Of Friends. The album also celebrates a return, exactly 50 years later, to Hooker's first hit, Boogie Chillen and serves as a perfect bookend for Hooker's first fifty years in the business

    11:32

    Hooker 'N Heat is a double album released by blues-rock band Canned Heat and blues legend John Lee Hooker in early 1971. The sessions were the last with harmonica player, guitarist and songwriter Alan Wilson, who died in September 1970 (1970-09). The cover photo was taken after his death, but a picture of Alan can be seen in a frame on the wall behind John Lee Hooker. Guitarist Henry Vestine was also missing from the photo session. The person standing in front of the window, filling in for Henry, is the band's manager, Skip Taylor. Careful examination of the photo reveals that Henry's face was later added by the art department.

    Dreamin', of the day, in the past
    I had a dream, last night
    Dream, of you, in the past, me and you
    I dream, we're back together again
    Me and you, me and you, in the past

    My dream. my dream
    I wished, I wished,
    It was true, was true
    My dream, dream, of you
    In the past, were back together, again
    Had a dream, had a dream,
    'bout me, an' me an' you, me an' you,
    Together, again

    When I opened my eyes,
    And looked over in my bed
    Ha, ha, you, you was not there
    You were only a dream, in the past, in the past
    Woo
    Dream a dream, in the past
    I had a dream
    We were together, again
