Watch the SECTION 5 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Progressive Blues Power

The key of B may not be used as prevalently as E, A or D, but B does offer unique phrasing opportunities, especially when you incorporate the use of open strings. B is also great because the four chord in the key of B is E, which, as previously explored, invites the use of all of the guitar's open strings. Some classic blues/rock tunes in the key fo B are Jimi Hendrix's "Red House" and Jeff Beck's "Rock My Plimsoul."
