  1. Of the countless online lessons for a beginner, this is the best one. Many thanks!

  2. If you play the D and E in the barred versions, and explain what you did, it puts the whole 1,4,5 thing into perspective much better, versus just using the open chords.(I've taught this a few times myself)

  3. very well done one of the best i have seen

  4. Good lesson. Direct. To the point. No fluff.

  5. When’s chapter 2 coming ?

  6. Worst blues ever I'd rather jump into the Mississippi & drawn myself right now.

  7. Thanks for the great lesson. This really built my confidence about playing. Looking forward to learning more.

  8. Stéphane RECOUVREUR

    Really, really well done lesson. Keep them coming!

  9. in witch key is this song?

  10. If someone can't learn from this video, a sign which says MORON should be hung around their neck. Really good vid.

  11. how did you get that tone?

  12. excellent lesson .looking forward to the next tutorial

  13. A link to the backing track would be nice. Oh well,12-bar blues backing tracks are a dime a dozen on Youtube, so it's not required… Thanks for sharing, and the great beginner lesson.
