Guitar Lesson #2: Slow Blues in G: Rhythm 2 – Performance
Alright, so this time we go through this 12 bar blues, we’re gonna add some more chords and build more tension. I like to incorporate some elements from jazz into my playing style, so we’ll throw in some altered dominant chords. This will give the progression different flavors and make it more interesting for soloing. It’s a great way to add some variety and spice things up.
Guitar Lesson #3: Rockin’ Blues in A: Rhythm 1 – Performance
All right, so the track we’re playing over is in A and has a 12 bar form. The turnaround section is a two chord to the five chord instead of the usual five chord to the four chord. For this rhythm part, I’m focusing on repetitive patterns with a driving classic rock and roll feel similar to Chuck Berry or Little Richard. This type of groove is common in blues music.
