Learn To Play… Pride & Joy by Stevie Ray Vaughan

In our second tuition video in collaboration with Your Guitar Academy, we take a look at Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble’s modern blues classic, Pride & Joy, from the 1983 debut album Texas Flood.


In this video, Your Guitar Academy’s Dan Holton introduces you to the texas shuffle behind SRV’s 12-bar classic. Be sure to note that for the purposes of simplicity in this video, Dan is playing in E standard, where the original track is played down half a step in Eb.

Be sure to check back here, or head over to our YouTube channel to watch our video on how to play Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix.
