How To Play Blues Guitar - Ragtime Turnaround - Key of C



powered by TinyLetter


Here's a basic ragtime turnaround in C taken from the playing of BB Fuller - simple and fun! Add it to your playing and spice up your chord progressions.


I'm using a capo on the second fret - I like to do that when playing ragtime. The chord diagrams are shown with no capo.

    You'll get there Tommy - it's all in the mind (mind you, some of it's in the fingers too!) Don't forget that all-important bloody-minded attitude - very important for the blues.

    Nice new lesson.

    But you mentioned a note that isn't played in your lesson about Truckin Little Baby. And the turnaround sounds a lot better with it. I talk about the C on the second string at the beginning. I love it^^

     Good point - this stuff is very fluid, though. During a peformance, I'd probably play the turnaround in different ways (in fact, I'm sure I do.)
