Why The Blues?

Some may ask why a lot of the online guitar lessons focus on the Blues. Well, there are a few reasons for this. First, I am more versed in the Blues than most other styles of playing guitar, so it is natural that I would teach this way. Second, blues music is the foundation of rock n roll and nearly all forms of American music today. Without the blues, you would not have Zeppelin, Hendrix, Maroon Five, Cee Lo, or even Metallica. That being said, I feel it is important to learn the fundamentals of American music. Third, blues music is relatively easy for beginners to grasp. It's just 3 chords! It serves as a great vehicle to learn basic improvisational skills. If you can't solo over blues changes, then its going to be hard to solo over other more complex chord progressions.

I realize that not all of you dig the Blues to much, but I promise it will make things more understandable and easier to grasp in the future. And who knows, it just may grow on you!
