DO YOU WANT A LITTLE EXTRA BLUES GUITAR SKILLS?
Try the following tutorial, add something new every day and you’ll feel better about your guitar playing.
Here is my second post in the series of How to Improvise on Guitar. Although it is designed for players who can already play a little, you don’t have to necessarily be able to read music notation to be able to work through it. Basic Guitar TAB reading skills are enough to get you through.
What I have done is written a reasonably simple improvisation on how to solo over a basic blues in in A, it’s a standard twelve bar blues sequence. Play it slowly at an even pace. The phrasing of the improvisation is not really set in stone, so long as you are in time with yourself and change to the next chord on the beat. But, if you really want to get a lot out of this, playe really really slow with feeling. I have intentionally NOT played a straight blues scale, what I have written is more around the chords, although you’ll notice immediately that I have used a blues scale in A. The last two bars are a classic Blues turnaround. Even if you only took one thing from this article, at least take the turnaround and add it to your toolkit.
