Watch the Adding Turnarounds online guitar lesson by Joe Dalton from Acoustic Blues Handbook
Of course, it’s one thing being able to play the turnarounds, and another being able to transition in and out. Practice to make these changes seamless. If you are new to the blues progression, you want to be able to feel the spot for the turnaround. Counting it out, in the beginning, is a good way to find the spot, but you need to feel the blues. Blues is an emotion, so play these with feeling. Listen to everything from Muddy Waters to Eric Clapton to the Allman Brothers to Led Zeppelin and don’t stop there.
