Blues Guitar Foundation gives you an overview of the history of the Blues from its origins in the southern United States through to its influence on Jazz, Folk and Rock’n’Roll.

You’ll find out the basics of creating a blues sound by using chords, melody and song structure – flattening notes to create the Blues sound and using call and response to support the vocals.

Listen to Sunday Evening Blues

Blues Guitar Foundation teaches you the 12 bar Blues and takes you through the slow change and fast change styles along with the shuffle and some variations.

You’ll learn some popular turnarounds using strummed chords, and string picking high and low melodies and endings.

Opening and closing licks are covered, as are call and response licks and scales using string bending and vibrato.

Listen to Sweet Lovin' Woman

You’ll also be shown how to improvise using the Minor Pentatonic Blues scale, and how the Blues lets you jam and play duets with other guitarists.

All the way through you’ll play great Blues tracks including the Chicago Blues and B.B. King styles.
