I hope you enjoyed learing to build a blues arrangement. You don't have to use these exact chords, licks or key. This approach can be used on any progression, in any style! The whole point is to think in terms of using all the various rhythm and lead guitar techniques you know and combining them in a dramatic way to build and release tension over the course of a song. You can use volume, phrasing, register, note selection to provide variety and contrast.

If you enjoyed this lesson, then GT has more on learning blues licks. There is also an entire Blues Style course that goes into much more depth and detail.

GT Blues Style Course Level 1

Happy blues playing!
