Born Under A Bad Sign - Albert King

In this beginners blues lesson, we take a look at how to play the easy riff Born Under A Bad Sign by the blues legend Albert King. This is great riff to learn as it is basically a technical exercise wrapped up in a cool song. You can also start to improvise over this song with your minor pentatonic scale. It's in the key of C#. If you unsure, we'll be covering it later on!

Born Under A Bad Sign TAB

N.B. This TAB shows just the 4 strings as it's meant for bass guitar. This is the same TAB as the guitar part, as a Bass is tuned to the same notes as the thickest 4 strings on guitar- so pretend there are 2 strings above the 4 lines below! :)
