How’s it going everybody.
My name is John McClennan and here with Thanks so much for
tuning-in. What I want to look at is a
cool way that you can break-up your blues playing.

Here we have a blues in the key of E and
I’m sure you’re all familiar with the very
traditional cliche, you know, this kind of
thing. But what we’re going to do now is
we’re going to just break it up like this.
We’re going to play one-and, two-and, just
like the previous example, but keep on
walking up to the 5th fret. And then we’re
going to come back 2, 4, 2 and then we bend
the 3rd fret on the low string. It’s one-and,

We’re playing that over the E and the A,
one string higher. Back to E. E, A and
then your turnaround.

So that’s a real interesting way. Be sure to
click the link below for the tab and we’ll
catch you in the next video. Thanks for watching.
