This video is an excellent Blues guitar lesson, Peter Vogl the instructor in the video, gives an easy to follow blues riff lesson, based on the basic Blues scale. The Blues guitar lesson is the standard blues riff, that is most commonly used in the Blues, and by many blues guitarists.
Once you understand and know the Blues scale, like any other genre of music, it is easy to improvise and make your own unique riffs. You can look at some of the following posts we have done on Blues scales, and guitar chords, which will help you with the video.
Before watching the video, read our post: Blues Scales: The Full Five This all the five major scales used to play Blues Guitar, and Yes it is Free.
Blues guitar has always been a more melodic style of music, versus any other genre of music. This is because of the off notes which are dominant in scales, instead of the actual root note, that should be the dominant note to play. Play with the scales and create some unique riffs. Blues guitar is half technical and half emotion. That’s what makes a blues guitarist shine.
