Watch the It's Not All Blues online guitar lesson by Andrew Ford from Blues Bass Survival Guide

We will be using a motif here that mainly consists of the 1, 3, 5, 6, b7 pattern but more involved using a slurred note yet still focusing on the notes of the dominant 7th chord. The quarter note triplet is also used in this example, it is played similar to the 8th note triplet only it uses 3 quarter notes in the span of 2 beats, or a half note. We also create a dynamic change in the last 8 bars so it can set up the top of the song.
