Blues Guitar Band
is a 'crash' course in how to play blues guitar in a band situation. How to take a handful of notes and three chords and play some blues. Not just any blues, but the classic blues 'motives' or simple phrases and licks that run through all the great players. You can't create your own style without them. Thumb through the book. It has lots of 'down home' blues techniques like ghost notes, chicken pickin', double stops etc. And eight songs with all the guitar parts- two solo's, rhythm guitar and bass.
Blue Notes Spoken Here
EZ blues guitar theory covers blue notes, the pentatonic scale, blues scale and guitar positions used. Breeze through it at first and refer to it often as you learn the songs.
If you're serious about blues guitar, learn to play by ear. It's not easy, but there's just no other way. Once you learn to play something by ear, you own it. It becomes a part of you, the part you need to play your blues.
