  • HEY GMC!

    This is your 'go to' bag of blues riffs and tricks. Learn these and you'll be on your way to becoming the next BB King in no time!

    The piece is all in E blues and the riffs start out easy and become a little more challenging as you make your way to 30 but don't worry these are all playable riffs for the beginner.

    In video tab no.2 you'll find an extra bit of fun where we look at taking riffs from different places in the piece and using them together to create our own blues, in my example I have used riff no.7,no.14 and no.21. The attached PDF has a 12 bar blues chord chart at the bottom so you know which riffs go with which section.

    Enjoy the lesson and have fun putting your own blues riffs together!

    TEMPO: 104BPM
