In this lesson I want to show you a tip on how to start learning how to correctly play over a slow blues 12 bar progression. Learning how to play over the chords in a 12 bar blues is one of the most critical steps to learn when playing blues guitar. If you don’t start doing this, it will sound like you are just riffing all the time, which makes for a really boring blues guitar solo in my opinion. This slow blues guitar lesson is in the key of C.
In this lesson I want to show you a lick in the style of Dickey Betts played over a Whipping Post type track. This lesson is in the key of Am. Dickey Betts is one of my favorite guitarists and what he plays over Whipping Post on the Fillmore East stands as a testament to his guitar prowess.
In this lesson I want to show you about how to play Have You Ever Loved a Woman style Clapton licks. This is from the 24 Nights version of this amazing slow blues song. His tone and phrasing are just utterly amazing on this performance, and it will always be one of my favorite versions of this song by him.
