Robert Belfour’s Mississippi Hill Country blues style is captivating and downright mean sounding. In this lesson, we’ll cover a few of the elements of his sound including a crazy low guitar tuning.
In Lesson #138, we built a series of licks in A that really helped you travel the neck. The “A sound” happens in many different spots on the neck and you need to be confident moving around the fretboard while maintaining the A tonality. The best way to help that, is to really focus on A. Take Lesson #138 for a spin if you haven’t already. Then, take things further and just jam on your own over an A chord at various spots on the neck.
But as fun as a one-chord jam is, after a while, you’ll be begging to switch chords.
That’s where today’s lesson will come in handy.
