This is the fifth video in the Blues Guitar Quick-Start Series. In this lesson we are going to take the basic 12-bar blues riff that you learned in the last lesson and dress it up a bit. This is a perfect example of how a little bit of creativity can take your blues rhythm riffs to the next level.
In the next lesson we’re going to shift our focus form blues rhythm guitar to blues lead guitar. So work through this lesson and then continue on with the Blues Guitar Quick-Start series to learn more.
