Nov. 2020: Blues in Open G
This will be the last key of the Blues in Open Positions: the key of G.
The key of G involves something different; an open C shuffle. Much like the open G shuffle, I am not aware of anyone else teaching how to shuffle in open C. Not saying no one else teaches it, I've just not seen it anywhere.
This lesson contains some textual explanation, a couple of fretboard diagrams, the 12-Bar Blues form in G, turnarounds in Open G and a 6-minute video.
Plus the links to all the previous lessons in this series are provided for you if you need them.

Simple & Complex Music: In my opinion, when it comes to music, there is no good and bad, there is only what you like and don't like.
Jam Tales: Narada Michael Walden: That time I jammed with Narada Michael Walden.
1972 Telecaster: I'm glad that guy said what he did, otherwise I wouldn't have kept it and therefore played it enough to figure out some things.
Update on the Launch of Unit 6: 7th Voicing
Unit 6 is done! However, there has been an amazing development at Master Guitar School that is going to require my attention for the next few weeks - it's a good thing! - but it will require that I delay the launch of Unit 6 for just a little while. The new development is very exciting and I will tell you all about it in the next newsletter!
P.S. In case you haven't noticed, in spite of me saying I was going to do some one-off lessons, the monthly free lesson for the last few months has been on the Blues and is a series. I just can't help myself! I'm all about the METHOD!
Anyway, when this series is done (only a couple more lessons) I will package it up in a PDF and make it available as a download. This stuff on the Blues plus Concepts for Basic Improvising constitute Unit 2 of my method book, Vertical Truth: Chordal Mechanisms for the Guitar.
