Hello friends,
and welcome to another rhythm guitar tutorial. In today’s session I’ll be breaking down one of the most used rhythm techniques in the blues genre, sliding 9 chords over a 1.4.5 progression. This technique is great for “playing the pocket” and staying out of the way of other instruments in a full ensemble. Let’s get started!
