In this Tutorial Series we are going to learning how to play a 12 Bar Blues in A!

Now we've established a simple riff to use in a swing rhythm on the A and D strings. This time let's move the whole pattern over to the next set of strings. That means we'll play the exact same thing on the D and G strings.

Again count in swing rhythm:

1 & uh 2 & uh 3 & uh 4 & uh (repeat) for every measure.

Then, switch back to the A and D strings. Repeat this for while getting used to playing the pattern on each set of strings and switching back and forth smoothly and efficiently.
