In this week’s guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play a really fun blues rhythm composition that you can play on your own (with no need for a jam track). This is full of classic rhythm fills that are designed to spice up your rhythm chops. I’ll also explain how to play them in any key.

Thanks, Brian. VERY cool blues rythym lesson. Can’t wait to start delvin’ into this one!
I’ve got it, just can’t spell it.
I do love how Brian nicely sneaks in some cool bass playing here as well……….in fact……….just coming up with a cool break and playing only bass string notes as a rhythm would be cool to add in this nice little ditty!! Jim C.
You are a really incredible! I just watched this rhythm and lead solo and it is going to something cool to learn ty much Brian!

Lots of great ideas here to take away and apply individually or in combination to our rhythm playing. Thanks again for another great lesson Brian.

Don D. says
Great lesson, Brian, thank you! Only problem is I never finish anything I start, not the first time through anyway.
Looks to be a very useful lesson.
very cool lesson ..so inspirational!!! thanks brian
Another good one! I have been a member since 2011 and I don’t comment often. I enjoy my weekend mornings playing Brian’s latest lesion. He always creates something new to learn that fits into what I like to play. As an older guy who does not play in a band, Brian’s more individual stand alone stuff is allows me to play by the campfire and doodle, making my own stuff up instead of playing song. As long as my wife and dog like what I am playing, nothing else matters.
very cool post, I feel the same thoughts except never married lol

Now that I have gone through it, this lesson is better than bagels and cream cheese! Part 2 started firing up the old brain to connect the wonderful rhythm parts to possible lead riffs and ways to travel the neck. This is going in the favorite section of the favorites! THANKS BRIAN!
These is ace
Thanx for being YOU Brian! Excellent lesson!
the end 9 chords genius.. I enjoyed this lesson so much.. highlighted each riff section and looped them until I moved to the next.. plenty of room to for to improvise too! this reminds me of your Robben Ford lesson .. great stuff Brian,your hard work should be paying off! Glad you had a relaxing labor day weekend.. pretty hot out anyway!
Brian, my download of EP272 – Just Guitar mp3 has a little editing error at the start, up to about 00:15, check it out. FYI

Great piece, Brian. Lots of great takeaways. Don’t worry about straying into jazz. I love it! There’s a lifetime of archived blues lessons on Active Melody, so I love the opportunity to expand my horizons.
A couple of weeks ago you posted a lesson that began with you showing an older used guitar you had recently purchased because it sounded soooo good. I wanted to try that lesson but I can’t find it. Can you help? Thanks.
