Viewer requests! Shane shows how to play two of Howlin' Wolf's biggest songs: "Smokestack Lightning," "Little Red Rooster" and  "Asked Her for Water (She Gave Me Gasoline)."

Tune your cigar box guitar to Open G to start the first lesson:

Next, we look at "I Asked Her for Water (She Gave Me Gasoline)."  First, he shows the riff in open G (GDG) and then explains how to re-tune the cigar box guitar to a rumblin' Open E (EBE) tuning.

The third lesson is "Little Red Rooster," a riff that that has appeared in other great blues songs by Son House, RL Burnside and others.
