This lesson was created exclusively for premium members. The jam track for this lesson contains only drums and bass, so your goal in this lesson is to play all of the electric parts (just like you would in a blues trio), so you’ll alternate back and forth between rhythm and lead. Half of this lesson is devoted to the back and forth (call and response) technique and the other half is devoted to rhythm (timing).

Another great lesson thanks Brian love it
Hi Brian . I like this blues lesson very much. It is easy, I am pleased with your teaching. May be some time you may show us some easy lead, and some backing up music to play along with. Once again thank you for your lessons.
Open chords, a few licks, and a nice, easy slow beat. It all makes for another lesson that not only sounds great but is within my ability. Great job, Brian.
Brain…… I have been trying to work on my timing, searching the you tubes like crazy for a lesson. Look at you!!! The perfect lesson with a good groove to stay in the pocket. As always THANK YOU.
Quick thought - on the tab, it would be helpful if you noted the “down” and “upstroke” notations. I’m practicing alternate picking and it is a good thing to get into. Using “upstrokes” while playing chords helps not only the timing but also adds a nice treble sound.

Great lesson Brian…helps with the timing and sounds like a blues player….
Thank you for your lessons, always very clear and understandable …even for a “non-native speaking guy”..(I live in Brussels and I speak french) !
Another great and Groovy lesson. Needs to practice my timing. Many thanks Brian
Hey Brian.. Nice lesson… I can already hear my lead for that in my head…. Can’t wait to loop that rythym and go to it 😉
Great lesson again Brian, thank you
I like the sound you get, what pedals do you use, if any, or any sound set up you use for this lesson
I always get the intro video(You Tube version) but never the Lesson or Slow walk thru videos, what has changed? this has just started happening.
I noticed something called vimeo what’s that but it looks like a change
I do NOT Like This Bulshit HD only crap I am On A dada plan and Thi s eats it all .
@FiveThumbs - I think you also emailed support, but in case that wasn’t you… this is probably an issue with your browser. Try either clearing cache or downloading a different browser than the one you’re using. Should resolve the issue.
@JamesCorrigan - you can switch HD on and off by clicking on the “HD” icon - on YouTube you can choose the quality as well.

Hi Brian, this is the first lesson of yours that I’ve really been able to play along with the backing track - so thank you ever so much for what I consider a real breakthrough in my stumbling attempts at playing the guitar!
Only problem is, once I’ve got that ‘groove’ going, I lose hours….
hi Brian can you tell me why the Videos always stops??in the pasat it was so good and now i always have Problems.thanks.
This is the lesson that got my first annual subscription. :-)
Tasty! This lesson is right up my alley!
It’s hard not go into a LaGrange mode, speeding it up, even with out the lead riff. mdv
Apologies Bar 22!
Bar 21 is pure class!
Wow, have a great time with that lesson. I’m learning a lot. Thanks!

Thanks love these kind of lessons as I play at home alone. Please keep them coming and something similar in the style of seasick steve would be very cool or even jack white or the black keys.

By the way, for me, the ‘rock G’ with ring finger and pinkie 3rd fret 1st and 2nd string + pointer finger 3rd fret low E-string
sounds good and makes it easier for me to go from the licks to the rythm.
