Watch the Harmonized Boogie online guitar lesson by Walter Broes from Rock, Billy, & Boogie Guidebook

Harmonized boogie lines and leads are almost impossible to come up with on the spot if you've never figured out how they work. They can seem a little daunting in a “what the heck is going on here?” kind of way, but once you realize you're really only playing chord or scale tones, you'll find harmonized lines are really not all that far-fetched, and they can really add a lot of flavor to an arrangement. Be patient and take it slow when you start working on these and the penny will drop soon enough.
