Mini Blues Chord Grips

The Blues Guitar Lessons

Little is often more, especially when it comes to chords.

Sometimes it sounds better to play small chord grips rather than big extended monstrosities :) The chords we learn in this lesson are really super useful in blues and jazz and I guess I would use these more than I would use any other chord grips!

They are simple, just containing the root, 3rd and b7th, but as usual the key is making sure you know where the root note is.

Backing Track

Here is the Blues in Bb Backing track for you to practice with! I kept this one pretty straight so you can really work in those extended chords, and make sure you are using all the chords we did in the previous lessons too! It does use a "Quick Change" still, but that's the only sequence variation.
