In this acoustic guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play a simple 12 bar blues arrangement in the key of G that requires no accompaniment. I’ll explain what scales I’m playing in and supply context in addition to showing you how to play the notes, so you understand the “why” behind the notes.

  1. i like lessons like this guitar with no accompaniment. One lesson about talking about what makes a good guitarist, you know what skills should you have to be a good solo acoustic guitarist. Or what would you play if someone asks you to show off a little.

  2. Thank you for this great lesson, it helped me a lot to understand some really fundamental concept about the blues. But there is one thing that I don't understand : if I count 1 2 3 4 according to the tempo of the song, it seems like you hit the first note after the turnaround (00:40) on the 4 and not the 1. Is there something that i'm missing ?

  3. IF YOU do not want to pay for the part 2 lesson, just see how he play at the beginning and learn it.U can make it trust me.
    It's unnecessary to play the same,what's more important is to learn what to play and how to combine the minor and major scales :>

  4. Insightful, focused and detailed. Thanks you as always Brian!!

  5. Great lesson! Would love to see some more lessons on the theory part of playing like you said in past videos. Keep up the good work!!

  6. Yes!!!!!!! BrianFromActiveMelodyDotCom…you nailed it!

  7. great lesson thnx.
    could you please consider giving us a slide lesson???

  8. Thank you yet again for a great blues lesson. Would you mind if I used this piece in my audition? I have to play a piece to get on to a music course in college

  9. realy an awesome lesson!

  10. Full of goodies, nice vid

  11. I love this Robert Johnson delta blues style. I think I prefer to play this finger style myself. Great lesson Brian.

  12. I love the shuffles! nice to see blues thats not in E! I would like to see something similar on electric though

  13. Bloody love it.  Just what I wanted to learn

  14. Great lesson Brain! Moving between the minor and major scales is just about visualising these scales on the fretboard. That's how I try to learn these scales. Knowing the notes on the fretboard also helps a lot! Are you by the way familiar with the CAGED system? Knowing where the root notes are for the five different scale shapes with help of the CAGED system is a great way in learning these minor and major scales.
