Watch the Q's Blues 1 online guitar lesson by Joe Deloro from Blues Rock Road Trip 2

Phrase 1 is a four bar T&V phrase. It’s a good idea to learn the lead part first without the bass before combining the two. Of course, going very slowly at first is also important. When you’re ready, combine this phrase and it’s variation into an eight bar period for a more complete effect and useful idea. Please be patient. If you’re new to this style it will take some time to feel natural.


The lead scale is the E Blues: E,G,A,bB,B,D,E (1,b3,4,b5,5,b7,8). In this case Bb (b5) is used to slide into B (5), and A (4) on the downbeat of each measure.
