I will tab out your request and send you the tablature + Guitar Pro file via email.

Fingerstyle Delta Blues in Double Drop D Tuning

fingerstyle-delta-blues-in-double-drop-d-tuning-guitar-lesson
Lesson ID: A0207

In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn a 12 bar fingerstyle delta blues progression in double drop D tuning (DADGBD). This progression is best played at a slow speed and it has a really nice bluesy sound. We’ll work through the tablature two bars at a time until we cover all 12 bars. At the end, practice the 12 bar blues progression with me.

Pay close attention to my thumb that plucks the bass note line. The thumb plucks the bass note on each quarter note count and we’ll play various melody notes in between the bass line with our pointer and middle fingers. Overall, this is a great lesson for working on fingerstyle blues guitar.

The tablature download is available below the lesson video.

Triangle Guitar Picks for Flatpicking

woodtone-triangle-guitar-picks

I’m a huge fan of the size and shape of these Woodtone Guitar Picks. They also have minimal pick scraping noise which is really important to me for flatpicking. Overall they’re winners.

Here are my two favorite picks if you wanted to check them out. It’s pretty amazing how each of these picks produces such a different tone — you can hear the difference in the demo video.

Fingerstyle Guitar Inspired by Colter Wall

Lesson ID: A0191

In this guitar lesson, we’ll work on some bluesy country fingerstyle guitar that’s inspired the song “The Devil Wears a Suit and Tie” written by Colter Wall. First you’ll learn the main chord progression that we’ll use to practice this type of fingerstyle guitar, and then we’ll work through a nice fingerstyle intro riff and a short instrumental break. During most of this guitar lesson, we’ll use a thumb pick to play an alternating bass line while we use our pointer and middle fingers to play a treble melody line in between the alternating bass notes. Also, be sure to follow Colter Wall on YouTube and you can find more of Colter’s music on his website.
