How to Play a Modern Blues Verse – Fingerstyle

Lesson ID: TB169

In this lesson, we’ll take a sneak peek at a lesson from the premium course called Sunshine & Grits.

If you’re looking for a way to spice up your blues, Sunshine and Grits – the premium course from BGI – can help. In the course, we take concepts from modern pickers like Keb’ Mo’ and distill them into a Country Blues tune with a modern flair.

You’ll learn:

  • How to keep the alternating bass pumping along
  • How to layer a snappy melody right on top of the bass thump

When you are ready, there are two ways I can help you:

Back Porch Blues Course:  A proven system to fingerpicking the blues.  This step-by-step course guides you through building fundamental fingerpicking skills.  Plus, you’ll learn three levels of a delta blues style performance study to put your new skills into action.
