In this lesson we're going to look at a very typical combination of the blues riff that you learned earlier, and the open chords that we covered in the previous lesson.

Later you'll learn how to play the blues riff in any key, but for now we'll use the blues riff for the I and IV chord, and the open B7 voicing for the V chord. This is something you hear guys like Freddie King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Eric Clapton do often.
