More Delta Blues Licks that Will Make You Sound Great

Lesson ID: TB131

In this lesson from Blues Guitar Institute, we’ll sharpen your Delta Blues skills.

In Lesson #130 we covered some basic ideas to get you started with Delta Blues. Many blues lovers strongly associate Delta Blues with acoustic blues. While there are other styles of acoustic blues (Piedmont Blues), you can’t ignore the shear grit of the Delta sound.

In this lesson, we’ll dig deep into the grit and somewhat dirty sound of Delta Blues.

You’ll learn:

  • How to play more intricate licks over a steady bass
  • How to add dynamics to your playing with “string snapping”
  • The bluesy note to focus on over the E chord and the A chord
