    THE PROFESSOR Learning how to build and play Minor Pentatonic Scales for Guitar, as well as understanding a I-IV-V Blues Chord Progression, will allow you to expand on these slide licks in your own self-study. As well, for anyone interested in the blues, check out my Blues Guitar Theory Guide for all your blues theory needs. 

    Greetings from Granada (Andalucia, Spain)!

    I like to use the bottleneck technique to play blues.
    This is a basic lesson of I, IV, V blues where I use intervals and pentatonic scale to play the melody.

    Music Style: Bottleneck blues

    Tonality & Chords: A Major

    Techniques: Bottleneck (slide)


    I used a Gibson Les Paul Gold Deluxe with a little bit of delay and overdrive.
    Note that I use the high pickup with tone down to get this sound.

    Tuning: standard tuning: E,A,D,G,B,E

    Tempo: 120 bpm (slow parts at 60 bpm)
