Blues Guitar Beginners Part 1

  • This event has now passed

This practical workshop introduces the blues, looking at playing techniques such as turnarounds, shuffles and basic basslines, demystifying ‘V-IV-I’ blues chord sequences. We’ll also explore fundamental blues techniques such as finger picking, hammer- ons and pull-offs, using examples from classic Blues recordings. You will need to be comfortable with the chords of E, A and B7 and be able to change confidently between them. It will also be helpful if you have some knowledge of the E minor pentatonic scale. (You can see the E And A Minor Pentatonic Scales here)

Participants will need to bring a 6 string acoustic guitar.

Joff Watkins is an accomplished blues player who combines performing and teaching, including leading the highly popular blues harmonica workshops here at The Stables

Tea & coffee is provided.
Participants on a full day workshop or course should bring a packed lunch and other snacks.
