I've played many blues styles over the years and am constantly amazed how the humble 12 bar can produce so many variations of chord shapes and sounds. Each style has it's own unique twist to the way you might play the three chord trick of the blues progression.
In this course I'll be sharing with you some of the ways you can 'bust' into different blues styles and build a library of chords and patterns to use in your own blues playing. You will learn the essentials of blues chord playing through eight different styles ranging from traditional shuffles through to contemporary blues. All exercises are supported by chord diagrams, guitar tablature, and of course the all important video guides so you can see and hear how it's done.
The course is suitable for both electric and acoustic players and any player who wants to expand their chord knowledge.
