Now you have a great introduction to this all too important style and region. The open tunings and artist approaches to these lessons gives you just the beginning to a style that paved the way for almost all modern music we have today. Take the time to review the examples, and work to sound as authentic as you can while also demonstrating the technique. As always, search out for videos and recordings of these artists to fully grasp the style and see how it fits into your own playing.

To end things off, let's try a 12 Bar Blues with our open G tuning combining both the Robert Johnson and Son House approaches. Once I demonstrate that, I will than approach the 12 Bar Blues again with added licks and changing bar lines. This truly gives you an idea of how this often solo-played style was approached. Enjoy!
