Can any of you point me in the direction of some easy to learn but great sounding blues tabs? I have looked up stuff on the internet but can't seem to find anything, can you all help?

Also, how about a site where I can learn power and bar chords? I have been neglecting to learn them, but I need too.


Any help would be grea!

This site was very helpful to me. There is a lot of info there.

http://www.ibreathemusic.com/

I have some PDF files that would help too. PM you email to me and I will send them your way. T-bone did some blues studies a while back as well.

The "Blues by the Bar" book isn't free, but it's really good if you want to get more tone from your fingers:

I did do some stuff a while back with Powertab and some sound files, but it's not beginner-type stuff. If you have the powertab program I could make you some stuff to help you out.
Too bad you can't make it to the bash...I could show you some stuff in person.

Learn the Pentatonic scale. Easy to use, it only has five notes. I learned one "shape" and was playing lead about 10 minutes later with a "Jam Tracks" Cd. I had friends who had played for years who were shocked that I could play lead after only playing the guitar for six months. Were my solos slow and basic? Yup, but they were the right notes, which makes a difference.

I would argue there are no wrong notes but that's a whole other can of worms
