Watch the Beginner's Blues online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Acoustic Guitar 5: Fingerstyle Principles

Beginner's Blues - Performance is a video guitar lesson presented by Tommy Emmanuel and is sourced from Fingerstyle Milestones.


The beginner's blues, in the key of E. So in the first part of it, I've playing a background note with the thumb, and then with the fingers I'm pulling down with my little finger and then on the second string as well. Then I switch to A, and then back to E, and then to B.

Then I do this little blues run. So this is the same shape as the E. One thing I want to point out is that when I do that little run, I'm doing that specific shape.
