Here's some cool stuff using the same technique from the song "Me and the Devil," one of Johnson's better-known tunes. The one different part here is the succession of bends on the 8th fret of the 1st string that he plays in bars 5-6. In the actual song, he only does this in one verse -- I guess it's better not to overuse this kind of stuff.
