   If you want to play Blues guitar there are many different methods to choose from, even hundreds of
them. The style has many variations and is the most traditional and well-known forms of music in the
world. It would be too difficult to exactly describe how to play blues so instead here are a few tips that
may help along in your quest to play a very rewarding and soulful type of music on the guitar.

Play Blues Guitar Tip #1

 First off, understand that you don’t have to be the best at technique or know lots of tough cords to play
the blues. The best blues sound originates from the heart using your feelings about true life and real
situations. Later your technique will improve and you can add more difficult chords to try different
variations of the blues but at first just get across the emotions of the song and you will be a good blues
player. Remember to play with feeling and the speed will later come.

Play Blues Guitar Tip #2

 You have to get used to the rhythm of the blues. A pretty common style is known as a “swung “ feel.
Just think of the sound of a heartbeat to guide you along for the beat. Most of the blues as well as
other types of music are played in straight 4/4 timing which can be easy to play and is easy on the ear.
Once you get comfortable with this style, you’ll be well on your way.

 Picking the notes of the blues will get you familiar with the fret board of your guitar. Learning different
licks can be great for all types of music but are the heart and soul of the blues. Take the licks your
comfortable with, play well, and experiment with them all over the fret board. This will give you different
keys and get you used to the various positions on the neck.

Play Blues Guitar Tip #4

 Another style of the blues that makes for quite a different sound is playing slide guitar. It’s not always
easy to play a regular guitar and is ignored by a lot of other guitarists for this reason. It’s definitely an
art form in itself and if you learn this art you will stand out from the crowd of blues players and regular

kinds of music incorporate this scale and can open the door for a more rewarding experience of the
blues. It’s an easy scale to learn and if you want to try solos, it’s a great scale to practice with.

                                                              By Yuki Shoji

Playing guitar can be an ordinary feat to most people. Any person, with the right ear for music, can
learn any instrument in a matter of hours. On the other hand, learning how to play blues guitar is
almost a form of dexterity that not everyone can master. Blues music has been the foundation of many
other genres of music such as Jazz, R&B and even Rock and Roll. The style of music is so captivating
that it almost sounds complicated as well. Here are a few facts in order for you to learn how to play
blues guitar:

The Technique

 The technique in order to play blues guitar comes from the skill in picking. Although essentially, the
scales make the music when playing the instrument, it is imperative to construct the picking technique
before scales can be played. The guitar can then be played as a Rhythm Blues Guitar or a Lead Blues
Guitar. There has to be suppleness in the fingers of the player in order to get the rhythm right.

Knowing the Difference

 For the Rhythm Blues Guitar, the chord progression is founded on the twelve bar blues structure.
When you play blues guitar, more often than not, the interval cords that are in progression are the I, IV
and V, but other cords may also be played so long as the tonality is present in the rhythm. The Lead
Blues Guitar, conversely, is more popular in terms of the measure of its expressiveness. It primarily
focuses on the technical skills of vibrato and bending. The pick’s basic motion is up and down,
alternating in every turn.

 In an example by James Ham, if there is a basic riff with the notes A,C,D,A,E one after another, the A
would be played with a downward picking motion while the C would be played directly after the A with
an upward motion. This is playing two notes in one motion. You can also try playing a 12-bar chord
progression in different keys, in the same way as when you play a rhythm blues guitar in pentatonic
scale. Try practicing this rhythm pattern continuously until you get the hang of the beat.

Getting Props

 There are also several audio samples of blues records available online. Most of which can be
downloaded for free. These samples may be played in both slow and full speed, helping you learn to
pace your rhythm during mastering your picking technique. Although agility is integral when you play
blues guitar, you must also concentrate on the accuracy of each note that you play and focus on your
scales. Fluid rhythm and chord progression are fundamental in making blues music. You can also get a
book that offers superb guitar licks that can help you practice.


 As you play blues guitar, or any instrument at that, it is always important to practice. It is in practicing
that we master our art and our passion. You can also sing along as you strum the guitar, after all, the
blues music is all about expression.
