Welcome to Blues for the Curious Guitarist. This guitar course is for you to finally learn how to play real blues guitar. I will take you from the very beginning of basic guitar playing through to advanced blues in which you'll be soloing over various major & minor blues progressions & songs. I'll give you endless chord changing possibilities so that your guitar chords will always be exciting with unlimited solo choices. I'll also show you to properly solo over blues songs in any key, to finally give you many options on where & how you want to approach your guitar solo.
Any kind of six-string guitar will work well for this course - electric guitar, acoustic guitar, or classical guitar.
Blues guitar is easy to learn but can become complex if we allow it. I will show you how to navigate blues guitar theory so that you can have fun & always be creative when playing blues guitar.
The lessons & concepts in this course are simple and easy to understand. Anyone can learn to do this. Every lesson video has a PDF attachment. These PDFs are the tabs, songs, chords, and guitar lessons.
This course is in four sections:
Blues Guitar Basics - Here I'll teach you all of the tools you'll need for the entire course from the very beginning.
Major Blues - Here we'll begin using the tools we've learned to play chords & solo through the major Delta style blues progressions while exploring lots of blues tricks along the way.
Minor Blues - Here we'll be learning the minor style of blues playing, still using the tools we've learned, but with a new method to unlock the minor blues.
Blues Songs - In this section we'll learn old blues songs that we'll chord & solo over. These are meant to jump start your blues song list and give you choices beyond the standard blues forms to play.
