Watch the Harp Style Licks online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Boogie-Woogie
This lesson presents harp-style one note-per-string layouts of the boogie-woogie utilizing the first string open as a drone. This will eliminate some extreme left hand stretching. The first string open is an E. If we treat it as the 5th that will place us in the key of A. If it functions as the 6th, we're in the key of G, and if it's the b7, we will be in F#. Figures 11, 12, and 13 show the layouts on the fingerboard for these three licks.
