Of course, there’s a lot more to playing a slow acoustic blues in E than meets the eye (or maybe less?) Often we play without really thinking about those little things we do to make this stuff interesting and also what strategies we have to pick and sing at the same time. Blues guitar lessons need to incorporate all those little things.
In this video I’m taking a closer look at an acoustic blues song I wrote called ‘New Orleans’ – I take it apart a little, and offer some ideas that can be incorporated into any blues in E. Someone once said that a good blues guitar player makes something difficult seem easy, and makes something easy seem difficult – you can make whatever you like out of that! Sounds good though.
Learn acoustic blues guitar in the key of E – the slow way! Very often, simple things work if they are put together properly.
