The idea in this tutorial series is to learn a new way to apply an old idea.

Many guitarists are familar with the idea of playing a blues on the lower strings. This time let's use the same idea - but play some of the notes an octave higher. This gives us another option for playing the blues that sounds a little different than the first one.

We'll keep the bottom bass note A, but play it on the E string at the 5th fret. We'll move the notes E & F-sharp up an octave from the D string to the B string.
