  • Hi GMC, welcome to the first lesson of the three-level solo series called "Fingerpicking Blues Solo"! :)

    As the name implies, we will learn some fingerpicking technique mainly intended for the blues. Some of you may recognize the backing - we used it in January Blues Stop Collaboration. The backing has 2 standard I IV V progressions, and in the second part, over the first 4 I chords, there are stops that allow us to express better and pull out some cool licks.

    This lesson is mainly intended for beginners in fingerpicking blues. If you have already started to use your fingers when playing the blues, here are some ideas and licks that you can learn and incorporate into your own style if you want.

    Backing is a standard 12 bar blues from E (E, A, B), tempo is 130bpm.

    This lesson contains:

    - Fingerpicking technique

    - Blues licks

    - Beginner Level fingerstyle blues

    - Stop-time Blues Backing track

    Enjoy! :)
