So the V chord is B7, and is played with triads only starting on the second fret of the A string.

You're gonna hit this B on every downbeat of the bar.

The turnaround lick is very useful for any blues progression.

Start by hammering on from open to the first fret on the G string, then play the open E string, then you simply fret the D note on the third fret of the B string and then open E once again.

The right hand applies the same technique as over the A chord. You're going to pick the hammer on with the pick, then pluck the open E with your ring finger, then play the D with your middle finger and then back to open E with your ring finger.
