Description

Tags can give your blues and ragtime playing real style and panache!
You can turn a simple blues or ragtime invention into something special by having a solid stash of tags up your sleeve. Tags are commonly used at the beginning or end of blues and ragtime picking and also to turnaround phrases or verses. You can easily get stuck in a rut using the same old intros and outros, so I thought it about time to have a course dedicated just to tags which you can dip into and spice up your playing.
I've used four of the common keys to demonstrate tag examples. These are E G A and C. All the tags can be transposed into different keys, and you are encouraged to experiment and come up with your own variations.
So, if you want to grab the attention of your listener and add real style to your playing, this is a must have collection!

Videos of all the 57 tags plus pdf and interactive Powertab.

Who is the target audience?
  • Acoustic fingerstyle players who enjoy blues and ragtime styles.

Tags can give your blues and ragtime playing real style and panache! You can turn a simple blues or ragtime invention into something special by having a solid stash of tags up your sleeve.
Tags are commonly used at the beginning or end of blues and ragtime picking, and also to turnaround phrases or verses. You can easily get stuck in a rut using the same old intros and outros, so I thought it about time to have a manual dedicated just to tags which you can dip into and spice up your playing. 
I've used four of the common keys to demonstrate tag examples. These are E G A and C. All the tags can be transposed into different keys, and you are encouraged to experiment and come up with your own variations.They are in no particular order of difficulty and came about as I sat down and played them.

So, if you want to grab the attention of your listener and add real style to your playing let's start the tags!

Tags In E
1 Lecture 05:44

E is a well used and standard key for blues playing and there are numerous tags you can try. Some of these I've written to resolve back to the root key E which can be used as riffs or outros for your blues inventions. In some examples I've added an alternative which resolves to the V chord - B of the three chord trick. You can mix these around as you wish. Try substituting one phrase for another or add to them. As you'll see, there can be many variations you can make, also each one can be adapted to suit different blues or ragtime styles.

Tags In G
1 Lecture 04:04

The key of G can throw up some interesting tags which can include blues, ragtime and country blues. Many of them can be transposed to different keys as there is less use of open strings.

Tags In A
1 Lecture 05:01

The key of A can offer up a whole variety of tags. With it's central position on the fretboard it is a firm favourite among blues players, as single note improvisation can move up and down the board easily. In the open position the key of A can create an interesting assortment of both blues and rag tags.

Tags In C
1 Lecture 04:28

The key of C is very popular for ragtime/blues and can produce a variety of tags that suit the open C chord position. Tags can be extended across the fretboard in various positions and easily transposed into different keys. This is one of my favourite keys for creating tags and it is fairly easy to produce many different variations.
