Electric Blues Essentials Level 2

Guitar Skills



This course includes the following 4 units

Unit 1

Slow Blues Groove

We kick off the course with an intricate slow blues rhythm track. We'll go deep into the theory behind 12/8 time signatures, learn the progression and how to bring 9th, 13ths and various chromatic ideas into your slow blues grooves!

Unit 2

7th Arpeggios

n our second unit, we learn a crucial set of arpeggios that we can use to expand our blues soloing, and even chord playing. Learning dominant 7th arpeggios allows us to target chord tones as we move through our 12 bar blues progression.

Unit 3

Slow Blues Solo

Up next we have an absolute cracker for anyone who loves a bit of blues lead! We take the chord track from unit 1 and learn a sublime slow blues solo over the top. The solo has everything in it!

Unit 4

One Man Band

In our final unit, we bring it all together by learning a "one-man-band" style of slow blues. Our aim is to internalise that 12/8 groove, and be able to play the chords and lead intertwined, whilst keeping the foot tapping and the feel flowing.

Feel the blues

We start with a deep dive into the rhythms used in slow blues. This includes the 12/8 time signature that is so key to the feel of slow blues. After that we build your dominant 7 chord and arpeggio knowledge with an epic across the neck exercise that will have you flying across the fretboard! Unit 3 dives into sublime slow blues lead using everything you've learnt so far to play a beautiful classic blues solo, and understand everything that's gone into creating it. Finally put everything together with a self accompanied slow blues that will really show off your new skills! This is a vital course in your blues journey.
