12 Bar Blues…

by Josh

Do you like the blues?  Yeah, so do I.  I regularly get a crop of guitar lessons that are made available via YouTube, and I stumbled upon this 12-bar blues lesson presented by MusicMoose.  It looks like there was a website available to get the tablature from, but it has sadly become a parking page as of 4/22.  YouTube still contains a great number of videos for both banjo and guitar, so be sure to check it out.

What I like about this lesson is he gives you a little bit of information about the key (in this case, E) and some great details about how to make the progression work.  He also includes some tips on strumming and holding the pick which is very nice for beginners like me.  At a bare minimum, it gives you some new things to try.
