In this lesson I'll show you how to fret bass notes with your thumb. This may be really hard to do right now, but once you get comfortable with it, it will open up a world of possibilities. Thumb voicings are extremely useful in blues, but they are also a huge part of Jimi Hendrix' rhythm guitar playing, Motown, Classic Rock etc.

I'm gonna show you the basic chord voicing and then we're gonna hear how it sounds with the backing track! We'll get into all the cool stuff you can use thumb voicings for in level 2...
