The BluesStarter Level One course is designed for the beginner guitar player who would like to learn how to play the Blues. The course is laid out in a very structured and systematic way, with every topic/ technique taught in extensive detail.
In BluesStarter Level 1, we start with some basic theory review and discuss how chords are made, and then we will explain what a standard “12 Bar Blues Progression” is and how to play it in any key. You will then learn how to play a “shuffle blues” feel and we’ll explore some different blues rhythm techniques/ tricks.
Next we explain how to make Dominant 7th chords, which make your chords sound more “bluesy” and you’ll learn two different classic blues style “turnarounds”
There is a complete acoustic blues solo piece that is taught in its entirety, which you will be able to play and impress your friends!
You will also learn some alternate ways to play Dominant 7th chords and 9th chords opening up the guitar neck and providing more options.
Next you will learn the Minor Pentatonic scale and how to use it for soloing and we will play along with a blues backing track to practice some solo licks. You will finish things off by learning a staple blues technique; “vibrato”
This course is packed with information, but it is presented in a structured, and systematic way. Each step of the way you will be building upon the knowledge you have learned in the previous lessons, so you will never feel overwhelmed or in over your head. You can move through these lessons at your own pace and watch the videos as many times as you like.
Who this course is for:
- Beginner guitar players
- guitar players who want to learn blues
Hi I'm Troy from Studio33Guitar! I have been playing guitar for over 30 years and have taught for almost as long.
From private lessons to video lessons, I have had the pleasure of teaching thousands of people of various age and skill levels from all over the world.
After teaching so many people, I have developed a curriculum that has evolved and been refined over the years into what I believe to be the best step by step approach to learning guitar. My philosophy about learning guitar is that knowledge goes hand in hand with technique. If you want to simply play a few chords, you can easily find someone to show you where to place your fingers on the guitar neck. But if you really want to succeed as a musician, it’s important for you to understand what it is you are playing. Studio33Guitar lessons teach just that; the “why” along with the “how”.
Don’t be frightened by the term “music theory”, our lessons are laid out in a very organized, and structured, yet simple way that will teach you in a true step by step approach.
