Hi, I'm Brad Carlton and welcome to Guitar Lab: Solo 12-Bar Blues. This course is organized to guide you through the basics of playing a 12-bar blues progression in the key of E with a fingerstyle picking hand approach. Each lesson examines specific rhythmic gridworks for both the bass (thumb) and melody (fingers). This approach will systematically increase your coordination, thus freeing you up to play unison as well as contrapuntal lines. So, grab your guitar and let's do this!
