That’s real cool Dan- something for the future for me
Ace, hope it gives you loads of fun, Peter!
Nice little lesson and it sounds great. Definitely something to expand on, too. Thanks!
My pleasure, and pleased you enjoyed this little intro! I hope you enjoy the rest too!
Love this!!!! The way you explain it makes it so easy to play something that sounds really cool in a flash!!!
Ace, glad to hear it, Kim. That is great to know, and delighted you are enjoying it. Lots of fun this!
Love the bouncy rhythm … shuffle pattern is fun. Nice lesson – straight forward- making the learning process easy… well, nothing is easy but you know what I mean- great teaching, thx Dan!
Thanks, Nancy, glad you enjoyed it. You are right, nothing is easy but it gets easier, so keep having fun and keep rocking the blues!
Very easy method, working on it now. Thanks Dan
Ace, pleased to hear it, Allan. Keep enjoying it! 🙂
Dan, That is too cool for words, I’m still working to get Part I locked in without too many OPPS. Another month will help and the new stuff is exciting even too an oldeee!
Glad you enjoyed it, Ron. It is lots of fun, yeah, keep taking it steady and keep enjoying it. 🙂
I could sort of play it before, but never had it explained to me. Now it makes sense.
That is good to know, Martin. Always good to get a full understanding and clarity on what you learn. 🙂
Okay Dan – now that is FUN!!! Cheers… Logan
I love it!! So much fun!!!! I didn’t have time to go through all the lessons today but I will definitely come back!!
Good stuff, the blues is great fun, glad you’re enjoying! 🙂
Had no idea I would enjoy this so much. Going to work on this for sure. Great lesson, direct and you made it easy to follow. That V chord, is a tough one! Thanks Dan
Super stuff. Can’t beat the blues for fun. Yeah, the V is a tough one but keep going back to it – you will crack it for sure. 🙂
Well that’s blues ambition up the swanie, there is absolutely no way my little fingers will ever stretch 5 frets!, l have really tried over time. Apart from being short my index a d pinckie turn slightly inwards but it was a good idea whilst it lasted .
Don’t give up on it, John. Try practising the whole piece using a capo, and you don’t have to do the pinkie notes – the 12 bar blues still sounds great without them. Treat them as a bonus.
Well, there y’go , after following your lessons, without realising it, l can stretch my pinkie 5 frets just. This is a first for me. I can’t make a positive note with it without muting the third string but l will certainly keep at it.
Super work, John. What a huge win and thanks for sharing. Shows how far we can all come. This is just the tip of the iceberg for you for what should come next. 🙂
This is great stuff, I’m starting to feel like a real guitar player.
The 12 Bar Blues shuffle really moves my soul…eagerly awaiting next lesson…Baz
Glad to hear it, Barry. Such a fun style. Keep having fun with it! Part 2 is HERE. 🙂
I can finally play this through smoothly and in time, mostly anyway ha! It is a lot of fun on my electric. Getting back into the groove of things, yaaaay😎
Great stuff, Nancy. Really well done! Super pleased you are getting back in the groove. Keep that going and keep having fun! 🙂
I have never played the twelve-bar blues. I am going to have to give this a go.
It is a cool sound.
Brill, I hope you enjoy it! Got to love the blues! 🙂
