Love Me Darlin'
Mike Pachelli takes you to school with a breakdown of “Love Me Darlin’.“ Stevie Ray Vaughan recorded this song for his album, IN STEP, which was released in 1989.
The song was written & recorded by Howlin’ Wolf in 1964, with the full title of “Love Me Darlin’ (May I Have A Talk With You). Stevie recorded a version of the song in 1985, calling it “May I Have A Talk With You.” At that time, he recorded it as a slow blues tune that was posthumously released in 1991 on the album, The Sky Is Crying. That album also featured previously recorded tracks compiled by Jimmie Vaughan, Stevie’s brother.
This lesson explains the treatment SRV gave the song in 1989. He did it as a medium tempo 12 bar blues shuffle.
As a bonus, Mike put an interview that he did with Stevie on his website,, so you may want to have a look at it after the lesson. That interview has not been seen anywhere for the past 23 years.

Mike plays a Gibson Nitrous Les Paul Studio in this lesson.

Mike Pachelli
    Mike Pachelli started playing guitar as a youngster in his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio. His earliest influence was Wes Montgomery who Mike says, "first opened my ears to the possibilities on guitar." Pachelli studied classical guitar at YSU and then moved to New York City to study bebop with guitar luminaries Joe Pass and Pat Martino. Mike's guitar style is an amalgamation of blues, jazz, rock, and neo-classical. He has a wealth of musical experience gained thru years of night clubs, concert halls, and recording studios. He's performed all over the U.S. and Europe with some of the most eclectic jazz, blues, pop and rock musicians including Brother Jack McDuff, Albert King, Les & Larry Elgart, Michael Sembello, Crystal Gayle, Barbara Mandrell, Jeanne Mas, Phil Keaggy, Frank Stallone (to name a few) and has done classical symphony concerts touring with Ferrante and Teicher.
