Written for the beginning guitarist who loves the blues, this text will guide any student through the basis of playing guitar by using blues melodies and blues chord progressions. Students will learn open chords, common strumming patterns, power chords, blues scales, and how to read standard notation, and tab. An effective method for writing original blues lyrics is also provided. This text has lessons on correct posture, caring for the guitar, proper right and left-hand technique, and tuning the guitar to its self, a pitch pipe or a piano. The accompanying CD provides students a professional recording of tunes and exercises that should be used as a practice tool.
