SRV Honey Bee Alternate Intro

In this lesson I'll show you a different way of playing the intro to the song "Honey Bee" by Stevie Ray Vaughan. I first noticed this while cleaning up the "Live at Rockpalast" videos for the Vintage Blues In 4K channel.

This variation isn't any harder to play, but it's just different enough to get someone's attention.
