Indeed! This was my introduction to Otis Rush. Alas, I lost this video in my recent move, and doubt I’ll ever be able to replace it, not that I have anything to play it on.
I made a half-hearted attempt to “master Chicago guitar” a la Otis Rush, but eventually got confused by his upside-down/wrong-handed technique, and gave up. But not before I learned a couple of cool licks.
