Easy acoustic blues rhythm – guitar lesson. Very basic – BLG001

Visit http://www.activemelody.com for more blues guitar lessons. Normally each Friday I put out a very thorough 45 min – 1 hour lesson on various topics, but this week I was caught in the launch of the new website and didn’t get a chance. So, I created this video showing you how to play a simple little blues rhythm that can be transposed into any key.

  8. Dr-Ng'umbi Nickson Hassanally

    Thanks bro! It really boosted my rhythm playing

  9. Hi Brian, I like the way you teach this song and many others. I like your approach of first playing the song at a normal tempo at the beginning, and then showing how you play the song note by note while also showing exactly what the left and right hands are supposed to do, and how to coordinate the two. I have learned to play many songs from you because your teaching style fits well with my learning style. Great teaching of great guitar teacher. Freddy

    I'm glad you did this quickie! Although basic and not your usual quality production-wise, it's still interesting. BTW, the new site is awesome.
