Truefire Jeff McErlain's Blues Rhythm Guitar for Beginners 1

The key to success when learning any style of music is having a strong foundation to build upon, which is the way most pro musicians learned to play when they were just starting out.

This first module of Jeff McErlain’s Blues Rhythm Guitar for Beginners is designed to help you build that solid foundation and get you up and running quickly.

”Learning just a handful of basic chords, a couple of strumming patterns and a few riffs are the fundamental building blocks you’ll need to start playing blues rhythm guitar. You don’t need to learn theory, struggle through tedious exercises, or read music

I’ll show you a handful of easy chords, essential strumming patterns, and one of the most famous Blues riffs of all - the Boogie Woogie. We’ll also cover some key blues techniques like muting, picking, hammer-ons and pull-offs, arpeggiating chords and we’ll even touch on some rhythm improvisation.

What makes this course really special is how you’ll learn these fundamental building blocks for playing blues guitar -- we’ll practice everything together!”

Each lesson begins with an overview and demonstration. You’ll practice together with Jeff using a slow playalong, and then you’ll play over a blues backing track for real-world musical context.

In the last section of the course, you’ll put all your new skills to work by learning, practicing and playing four full-length blues songs.

You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the lessons. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson.

You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.

Grab your guitar and let’s learn how to plays blues guitar with Jeff McErlain!
