This acoustic blues guitar lesson was filmed live before a studio audience 😉
When you play music, in general, you need 3 things to make it sound musical – rhythm, harmony, and melody. Using “thump bass” you can provide a nice rhythmic pulse, and using either a brush stroke or your other fingers, you can play chords.
What makes it sound super cool is when you get 2 different rhythms going on… but that’s no small feat 🙂
You might notice that I played this lesson on an electric guitar, that’s simply to show you that acoustic playing is more of an approach, not so much about the instrument itself.
Take some time to dig in to this video, and you can download the TAB for the 3 styles (simple, bouncing 1/8ths, and the triplets) below the video.
