Watch the Drop D Blues online guitar lesson by Joe Dalton from 50 Acoustic Blues Licks You MUST Know

In the Drop D Blues, again the bass notes sound like a separate instrument when you get the hang of punching those chords in there with just the right feel. I heard Steve Warriner use this as a rhythm part on one of his older albums. Since we dropped the 6th string to D, the G pattern now involves a barre. The ending has many hammer-ons and pull-offs. That one is fun to play.
