Watch the John Lee Groove in G online guitar lesson by Richard Van Bergen from Down Home Boogie & Blues Guidebook
In natural tuning, the key of G is often used in singer-songwriter and country music. It's not necessarily a favourite for old-school boogie & blues grooves. Of course, you can play the grooves you're familiar with in E and capo to the third fret. In the next groove, I'll show you how you can play a John Lee Hooker type boogie in G without the capo or tuning to open G first.
