Watch the Red House online guitar lesson by Kelly Richey from Blues Grit

Individual focus placed on Rhythm and Lead: here we incorporate 9th chords into a slow tempo 12 Bar Blues progression. Keep in mind that when you’re playing slow blues, each and every note counts! Here, I’ve given examples of as many of the techniques that we’ve covered as possible. You will see examples of slides, bends, vibrato, picking with the middle finger, the “figure 8” strumming pattern, hammer ons and pull offs, and pinch harmonics.
