She explains how to play the power fifth chords as well as the I, IV, V blues progression. She also discusses the basic methodology behind playing the blues and how lessons learned in this video can be applied to other songs as well.
4 Blues Rhythms – In this section you will learn four distinct blues guitar licks. Jennifer starts with the most basic blues guitar rhythm which is demonstrated and explained with a tight shot of the neck. You get a chance to play along for practice. Jennifer then builds from this basic rhythm, adding more complicated rhythm patterns and fingerings. Jennifer also teaches what fingerings work best for fluidity, and how to you can use these rhythms in any key. You will learn classic and recognizable blues progressions such as the “Hootchie Cootchi” – all broken down in easy-to-learn segments.
La Grange Rhythms - You will learn three different rhythms used in the song La Grange By ZZ top. David goes over all the chords, timing, finger picking, and fret-hand work needed to cop the feel of the song. You will get close up of both hands so you can see all the technique on the finger-picking and fret-hand work up close and personal. David also teaches playing on the off beats to give the song a real swing boogie feel. Each rhythm is broken down and played at both regular and slow speeds. David concentrates on teaching the fret hand, finger picking, and pick hand techniques that make this song so cool. On screen text ties it all together and makes learning even easier. You also get up close shots of all the chords and also picture-in-picture for two distinct camera angles so you really can see everything up close and personal. These techniques can be blasted across all your playing!
