Blues Guitar Lesson - Fingerstyle Blues (both Rhythm and Lead) - EP202

In this blues guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play a Chet Atkins fingerstyle blues rhythm in the key of E. I’ll break everything down and show you how to play it note for note. I’ve also included a separate video showing how to play a lead part along with the rhythm. That’s available for Premium Members.

  2. There's a 7+ minute clip, of the Fender factory, 1959. The guy playin over it got my attention. Check it out, see if you get any ideas from it. Thanks Brian!
    Keep up the good work.

    Hey Brian I was wondering if you could do a lesson on George Harrison style soloing, I know you did one demonstrating his slide style but how about one in an ordinary soloing style.
