Time To Start Learning How To Play Blues Songs


Hopefully you want to learn how to play over blues songs as it’s such a popular musical genre. This is almost a musical mirror of the last song. The last song was a blues in a minor key, this song is a blues which is more major in flavour. In flavour because the fact is none of the chords are actually major chords. We are using dominant seventh chords throughout. Hopefully this song will really open your eyes up to what is possible. You will be playing chords that have great connections all over the neck and on all string sets.

This is just really the beginning of what you will be able to do. If you consider the dominant ninth chord lesson that you hopefully completed earlier, you’ll realise there are huge possibilities. You can use dominant ninth chords instead of the dominant seventh. In this way you are colouring the chords that you play.

We are nearly at the end of this thirteen lesson course. You only have one lesson to go and you will no doubt find this a real challenge. It might be a good idea at this point to revisit some of the other lessons before taking on the last lesson.

As with the last lesson as this is an actual song, there will not be any quiz questions offered. Enjoy playing this song, the next and last lesson/song will be very difficult so practice hard!
