This course is designed for the beginning guitarist who wants to start playing the blues. No note-reading ability is required in this course, but a basic knowledge of open and barre chords is necessary. These types of chords are taught in Mel Bay’s Anyone Can Play Guitar, Vol. 1 and 2. This video will teach you new chords and chord progressions as applied to blues music. You will learn blues techniques, licks, and scales that will enable you to perform complete blues guitar solos. Also included are rhythm tricks so you can practice your chords and licks with a complete blues band. Includes an instructional booklet at http://www.melbay.com/DVDbooklets/index.asp.
