Watch the Over The Top online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Guitar Licks You MUST Know
As musicians we need to know how to speak to each other. That requires some basics that you must know, like knowing the notes on the neck. All of them, I know there is that mystery zone around the 7 to 12 frets on the middle strings. Put in the time and learn them and the payoff will be well worth it. Then learn your triads and 7th chords. You get the idea, music is a language, learn how to speak it fluently.
