BLUES FINGERPICKING LESSON
This lesson is included in the book "A Guide to Acoustic Blues Guitar." In this introduction to finger style blues we will cover an alternating bass pattern over a 12 bar blues progression in E. We will start with the just the bass pattern. Then we will add melody notes on the beat and between the beat. This style is evocative of the playing of guitarists like Big Bill Bronzy, Blind Blake, Mississippi John Hurt and many others.
