Watch the I-IV-V Rhythm Pattern online guitar lesson by Tim Sparks from Fingerstyle Boogie Handbook

This lesson shows you inversions of the I-IV-V chords, the DNA of the blues. These chords are built from the top down and use inversions which gives them a smokey, jazzy sound. These chords consist of only two or three notes. They are easy to play but they have rich chordal quality.
