Another improvised, simple 12-bar blues in root positions - this time in the key of E - shown entirely as a close-up on the fretting hand. Note that you can substitute a C7 for an A7 when following the B7 chord in the 10th bar...

Great! Keep'm comin. Can't wait til you're full time retired! Thing I'm gonna get out of this one is around the 1:25 point. Where you put in the walking chords instead of just vamping on E or throwing in notes on top of the E. They have a Major feel and kinda jazz it up. I like the pull off of the 1st string when making the D7 shaped E7. I do that too. I really like the way it sounds off of that same shaped chord on up to A7 chord. (9th fret?) do the pull of then hit 2 string then 3 string.
 There's another turn around for you Hadden too, just walking that chord down chromaticaly pretty much. That's a good one and more on the bass strings for variety.

What are the notes on the turnaround walkdown from the 5th fret? I see the D, C#, C on the lows... I hear it as 3rds. Hard to tell. Is he playing the E note throughout as well?

Also a walkdown that slides the e7 form down 3-2-1. Looks like anyway. I think the second would technically be a diminished chord. So this is a sub example? When I think about it there could be quite many substitutes.

Took me a second to recognize the B7 voicing at the 2nd fret. For some reason I never use that one. It's easier than the bar chord.
