Watch the Slidin' 6ths online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Essentials: Solo Electric Blues

This first blues uses a number of important techniques and ideas like, as the title says, sliding the interval of a 6th. The other technique is hybrid picking which is basically where we use both the pick and fingers of the pick hand. This blues is a great introduction to this essential technique. We are taking a 12 bar boogie blues in E and expanding on the basic theme that we are all familiar with. Like all of the examples in this course, this is just a springboard for your own playing.
