Don’t give up on the blues


Hold on to your blues guitar chords and practice all the time. Eventually you’ll make your way to the Blues
Jam with your guitar. The Blues Jam is the venue to show off your talent, and this all begins with the blues
guitar chords. The magical blues guitar sound will come later.


Learning the blues guitar chords include a knowledge of the blues scales, blues runs, major third note, and
other important fundamentals of the blues guitar. Understanding the entire process and system will equip
the blues guitar player with the coveted improvisation skills.


Improvisation on the blues guitar chords can lead to other genres like rock, electrica, jazz, and rock ‘n roll. It
is unfortunate that most beginners underestimate the blues. Everyone wants to go the easy route and start
playing guitar solos, but that’s just wrong. To become a good guitar player and to even go halfway, the blues
have to be experienced because the blues has it all.


Begin the blues
For their first lessons, beginners are given blues pieces by their instructors. This has basis, because the blues
is the best place to start when you want to move forward with your guitar playing.


The basic blues guitar lessons involve the learning of the common blues introductions – usually in the A key
with alternates and variations. The melody and harmony lessons precede the blues rhythm. There are three
primary chords frequently played in most blues – the 1st, 4th, and 5th intervals or the 3 chords progression
from a major scale. There will be several variations here. In the key of A, the triads are A, D, and E. For the
key of B, it would be B, E, and F#.


Assuming you already have a background on guitar tablature and know the basic guitar chords, you will be
introduced to blues guitar chords, such as the blues movable barre chords. When the first finger of the left
hand presses all six strings across the fingerboard, the finger acts as a bar. You will then be able to move
several of the open chords across the fingerboard. Other blues guitar chords are A 7 B, blues rhythm guitar
in C, blues shuffle boogie in E, blues rhythm guitar in A, riffs, scales and runs. These are just a few of the
blues guitar chords you can get from online guitar sites.


Some tips for better blues


Learning the blues guitar chords is learning how all these work together. So you have to learn the chords by
groups or chord progressions. Constant practice will attune your ear to the different tones produced.


If you want a better sound when you play your blues guitar chords, use a guitar with big strings. Great blues
guitarists prefer bigger frets too. This gives more space for their fingers, and there is less of a drag because
there is minimal contact with the fingerboard.


Wear the slide on the finger you are comfortable with, but practice wearing it on the others too. If you are
using a slide guitar, do not use a pick. It will be awkward initially but you will soon get used to it.


Freeing your music


When you have mastered the blues guitar chords, you will eventually develop flexibility and style. You can
test the different blues guitar chords in different ways to create your own blues sound. And yes, this blues
will bring a smile on your face.
