Guitar Lesson Overview

Here is a great little jazz blues guitar lick, which sounds great from the 1 in a 12 bar blues. It works both for a jazz blues or a regular blues guitar shuffle. You can experiment with the technique too - I use hammer-ons and pull-offs a lot when I play, but you can of course pick every note if you prefer. See what works best for you, and if you have any questions, let me know.

I use Guitar Pro for most of my video lessons. It is a great product that will not only show you the notes in both TAB and standard notation, you will also HEAR them being played at the same you see them. Very helpful for learning! Click the link below to try the free demo.

Great sounding link. Is there more to it? It sounds familiar and I would like to learn the rest of the song if there is one. Please advise.

Great lesson! Do you have a backing track this would go well with? Or a basic chord progression suggestion?

Thanks!
