In this tutorial we are going to learn a new way to play a blues arrangement for solo guitar. This involves combining a bass line with middle chord tones as well as upper chord tones. In this way we get a very full sound and suggest three separate voices or things happening at once!

In earlier tutorials we've had two distinct, separate parts: a constant bass line & a repeated diad (two note "chord") on the E & B strings. This time we will add some middle range notes ("inner voices") on the D & G strings to the exercise in order to further expand on our blues orchestration skills. This will create a very rich and full sound.
