Take Blues Guitar Lessons and Become an Ace Blues Guitarist
Blues is really fun to play.
It’s typically what people choose play who jam with each other for the first time.
I still remember as a teenager, how much I enjoyed going to blues festivals and how impressed I was with the energy of the blues guitar solos.
In the first 4-5 years of my guitar playing journey, blues was pretty much the only thing I played.
The importance of blues on the development of contemporary music styles, cannot be overstated.
Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Cream, Queen, John Mayer, Pink Floyd… the list is endless with many thousands and thousands of artists and bands who have been influenced by the blues.
While blues might seem deceptively simple: there is quite a lot to learn if you want to get to the core of blues.
From Delta Blues to Chicago Blues To Texas Blues, one could spend years mastering the many blues styles and techniques.
