In this lesson we're gonna explore a different "blues box" that many guitar players refer to as the "Albert King Box". Once again, a "blues box" is a place on the neck where you can play a couple of bluesy notes- not a whole scale pattern or anything like that. That's why it's also referred to as a "micro position".

I'll show you how to find this blues box from your familiar pattern of the A minor blues scale, and we'll go through the notes and how to use them before we start playing.

Also in this lesson, we'll go back and forth between me playing four bars and you playing.
