Blues Turnaround

Dave's here with another channel episode! His tip of the week will help you with your chord changes. He shows how to lift your fingers off the strings on the last beat & strum right before a chord change in order to get in position to the next chord on time.

For the main lesson content Dave shows you a classic blues turnaround. This is a corner stone of any blues style guitar playing. He shows you how to use it to start and end a blues riff in order to give it more structure and sound more musical.

If you want to learn more about blues turnarounds, and blues style playing in general, then GT has guided style course covering all those techniques in greater detail & depth.
