Watch the Breakdown 2 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Slow Blues Power

In bar 2, we move to the IV (four) chord, E, and this is one of the great things about playing slow blues in B; the open low E is the lowest note on the guitar, and this low note is very expressive sounding when played aggressively and used in the midst of one improvisation. Here, I base the lines on the E Blues scale (E G A Bb B D), and utilize the open E, A and D strings to great effect. On beat two, I again use the fingerpicked “rolling” technique alluded to earlier, pulling off from G (sixth string/third fret) to the open low E, followed quickly by E an octave higher, located on the D string at the second fret, and another E yet another octave higher, sounded by the open high E string.
