Subscribe: ► http://geni.us/subs ♥ Your Support Appreciated!
This is the first lesson in a series of lesson looking at Blues Rhythm Guitar, an Intermediate Module. This lesson looks at a simple visual trick to get you playing a 12 Bar Blues in every and any key. It’s quite simple, but something I struggled with when I first started playing Blues rhythm which is why I’m starting the course with this – it’s absolutely essential that you understand this… I know I rambled a bit and repeated stuff, but it’s so important that I wanted to ensure it goes in 🙂

The backing track is free on the web site!

  16. A concise & informative lesson Justin! You have a natural ability to communicate in a personable & encouraging way which so many other online teachers lack. Can't think what those 166 thumbs downers were looking for but they obviously missed the point. You can't please em all… Appreciate your efforts in making these excellent & instructive videos! But man those bar chords up around the neck are hellish on acoustic guitar"!
