Welcome to the eighth video in the Blues Guitar Quick-Start Series. In this lesson you are going to start learning how to choose the notes that you play in the blues scale to fit over the chords in the 12-bar blues progression. This will make you really sound like you know what you are doing instead of just randomly playing through the blues scale shape.
In the next lesson we’re going to talk about how to start developing your blues phrasing and self-expression. So work through this lesson and then continue on with the Blues Guitar Quick-Start series to learn more.
