Watch the Blue Tarp Blues online guitar lesson by Sonny Landreth from Slide Supernatural: Blues

This one is a simplified version of my song "Blue Tarp Blues" from my record From The Reach. For this one we'll use the minor key version of G tuning by simply lowering the B string a half step to Bb, making the tuning DGDGBbD from low to high. I really like this tuning because it creates a moodier vibe that can really change up the set.

The verse is a basic 12 bar minor blues, using Gm, Cm, and Dm. By adding an F chord into the chorus we'll segue out of the blues progression and add in some big power chords.
