OK, it's time to learn to play some guitar!

Downloads to Get You Started

As you learn new music ideas, licks and riffs in the lessons, use the below two blues guitar backing tracks below to jam along in the key of E and A.

E Blues Guitar Backing Track
mp3: E Blues
wma: E Blues
Time/size: 5 mins 30 secs/7.55mb
Time signature: 4/4 time blues shuffle played at 90 beats per minute.
Blues backing track: 12 bar blues progression in the key of E.
Backing track instruments: electric rhythm guitar and drums.
Suggestions: Play the E blues scale.
Progression: This progression follows the following 12 bar blues format:

E5 E5 E5 E5
A5 A5 E5 E5
B5 A5 E5 E5, C5-B5

Another way of writing the above out is like this:

Chord: E5 E5 E5 E5 A5 A5 E5 E5 B5 A5 E5 E5, C5-B5
Chord: I I I I IV IV I I V IV I I, V
Bar: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

I'm actually playing E5 to E6 and back on the E chord. Similarly with A5 to A6. The B5 I'm only playing B5 as I find B5 to B6 a bit hard to play.

Here's a similar blues backing track in the key of A:

A Blues Guitar Backing Track
mp3: A Blues
wma: A Blues
Time/size: 5 mins 27 secs/7.48mb
