In this course we’ll learn the concepts and techniques used for playing soulful slow blues lead guitar. How to find notes all over the fretboard, playing the 12 bar blues, minor pentatonic scales, blues nuances, and more are covered.

I spent a lot of time thinking about everything a student would need to know to be able to start playing leads over a slow blues and the lessons in this course are what I feel will get you there if you practice.

This course is not for someone who has never played guitar before at all but for the student who has maybe 6 months to a year of playing behind them.

To take this course you will need to be able to play and strum some open chords, play a simple major barre chord, and be able to play the first position minor pentatonic scale.
