Lynyrd Skynyrd Style Blues Progression

Lesson ID: A0024

In this lesson we’re going to go over an awesome Lynyrd Skynyrd style blues progression that involves hybrid picking. If you’re new to hybrid picking, you might also want to check out my hybrid picking lesson series. In this particular lesson, we’ll focus on using the pick, middle finger, and ring finger.

Once you master this style, it’s really fun to use at a jam sessions. For example, when you’re playing the twelve bar blues at a jam, trading lead back and forth, you can use this hybrid picking style when it’s your turn to play the rhythm part. It always sounds great when you can start out strumming during one section of a song, then switch to a hybrid picking style during another section. This adds some variation that makes your music sound much more interesting to your listeners.

Wow I’ve just kinda glossed over these lessons as I didn’t think they were like the others for some reason.
Absolute this Southern Rock style and been a fan for years.
I play sweet home Alabama do this will make a nice addition too.
Gonna be a hard one but with the lesson achievable. Many thanks

Loving this lesson, and I’m working slowly through it. My some of your improvisation riffs are awesome at the end run through 🙂
Is there a particular Lynyrd Skynyrd song that would fit this arrangement ?
Thanks once again 🙂

Appreciate this lesson, is it out of context to make a request of sweet home Alabama? Thanks Devin
