Spoonful - Howlin Wolf

In this series of videos, I show you 10 riffs or songs that use notes from the E minor pentatonic scale, the easiest and most common scale for rock and blues! If you have not covered this scale, please watch this video first where I show you how to play it!

This guitar lesson covers how to play the classic blues riff 'Spoonful'. Original by Howlin' Wolf, we focus on the Cream version here, as played by Eric Clapton. This is also a great opportunity to improvise, also using the E minor pentatonic Scale as this song is in the Key of E and is a blues song- give it a go!
