Play Blues Guitar

Play Blues Guitar starts off by teaching you some Mississippi Blues – the birthplace of Son House, Albert King and Howling Wolf. You’ll learn about the importance of touch and tone in this style, and the full tone bend, half tone bend, and full tone bend and release techniques.

Rockin’ Blues shows the way that the Blues was later interpreted by great rock guitarists of the 60’s and 70’s such as Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix and Ritchie Blackmore. You’ll learn the use of Blues strumming, unison bends, hammer-ons, pull-offs, positions shifts and slides.

The St Louis Blues styles was pioneered by T-Bone Walker and popularised by Chuck Berry before influencing The Beatles and Rolling Stones amongst others. With this style you’ll learn palm muting, fast bends and slides, and combinations of the minor pentatonic scale and mixolydian mode.

British Blues influenced guitarists such as Peter Green, Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor and Keith Richards and this track shows you fret hand muting and the use of the Blues scale together with the dorian mode.

Finally, Texas Blues teaches chord “chips”, trills, double stops and curls as used by Stevie and Jimmy Vaughan, Roy Buchanan and Johnny Winter.
