Welcome to my new lesson where we take a look into the classic turnarounds you find at the end of each 12 bar cycle in a blues. These are iconic riffs that every blues player music know! We are in the key of E Blues and use the open strings as pedals in most of the riffs, this was a common technique used by guitarists in the early days of the blues delta, playing in different keys was often achieved by simply using a capo to raise the pitch.
Its fair to say that some of these riffs really come alive with the use of the open strings so we will look into a lesson that uses only transposable patterns in the future so you can unlock all keys!
