Sept 2020: Blues in Open A
Continuing our beginner-level lessons on the Blues; The Blues in Open A is the easiest of any key/position because the I, IV and V chords all consist of open string shuffles. No big stretches.
Be sure to go through the prerequisites that are linked to at the beginning of the lesson if you haven't gone through them already. This current lesson presupposes them.
Also given are Turnarounds in Open A.
There's a 3-and-half minute demonstration video of the entire lesson included as well.

Rut Busters! Double Your Vocabulary! Every lick, every pattern, every solo you've learned in A Minor moved 3 frets down becomes A Major. It sounds different, it's different theory-wise, it has a completely different emotional content...but it's fingered exactly the same! Just moved 3 frets down.
Ether-Shift! Live-Stream! When something paradigm-altering happens, those who actually come out on the other side better off than others are those who can let go of the old paradigm, adapt to the new reality and learn to take advantage of things that are now possible that weren't possible before.
What's Wrong With My Hand? Disordered Placement. When fingering a chord, most people put their fingers down in numerical order. Sometimes that's right; many times it's wrong.
