Play  Blues Guitar - Blues In E Tips - Blues Guitar


powered by TinyLetter



Of course, there's a lot more to playing a slow 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.

In this video I'm taking a closer look at a 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 guitarist makes something difficult seem easy, and makes something easy seem difficult - you can make whatever you like out of that! Sounds good though.

Very often, simple things work if they are put together properly.

Have a good time with it, comment and ask questions if you like. If you like the video, the name's Jim Bruce - if you don't, it's daddystovepipe ...

Keep on pickin'
Cheers
Jim

    I seem to know most of the left hand fingerings that you use but I don't get the sound.

    What is it that makes the "feel" of the blues? Now that is the question

    Love the video keep them coming

    .. and that is a really, really good question, and I'm not sure how to answer it. I think it's a different answer for different people. I suppose being bankrupt twice, divorced three times, and terminally broke often helps a little.

    Gotta agree with y'all Stovepipe, Jim's playing has a charm all of its own .. say dudes I play a little homemade blues and wanna post on YT, however the only webcam I can find has an external mike,

    That records neighborhood noise like gunfire, sirens and dogs barking, along with the guitar track .. I need to produce the same excellent video and sound quality, that both y'all bluesmen's videos are known for :)
