A Beginners Introduction to Blues

Chris Reed

Qualification: My name is Chris Reed. I am 19 years old and have been playing guitar for 10 years and teaching guitar for 2 years. Every student I have ever had has achieved their goal when they stuck to what they were taught. I have taught 7 year-olds to almost 60 year-olds. Age does not matter at all. The only thing that matters is if you want to learn. If you do, you have come to the right place!

Price : US $10.00

In the lesson "A Beginners Introduction to Blues", I will teach you some basic elements for playing the Blues. Blues, like almost every genre of music, can be played in a very simple manner. The greatest blues songs consist of only three chords.


Examples of 3 chord blues songs:

"Sweet Home Chicago"

by: Robert Johnson(originally)

"Johnny B. Goode"

by: Chuck Berry(originally)

"Green River"

by: Creedence Clearwater Revival (C.C.R.)


by: The Rolling Stones

...and hundreds more blues songs, just like these, only have 3 chords!


You will be learning:

"Power Chord Blues"

"Three Chord Blues"

"Three note Blues"

"Blues Beginnings/Endings"

...and depending on what level you are on:

"The Blues Scale"

"How to solo over ANY Blues song"

"Blues Licks"


The way I will begin this lesson is the way every lesson will begin.

1. Tuning (if you don't know how to tune without a tuner, tell me so I can teach you)

2. Tell me and or show me your level of musicianship

3. Tell me what BLUES songs YOU want to learn

4. Tell me and Show me what you learned from the lesson

5. Homework (if you don't do the homework, don't sweat it)


Here are the required items for every lesson:
