Blues Guitar Lessons Will Bring The Soul Out In You
While you may not be on the level of Eric Clapton, Lonnie Johnson or Tampa Red, your blues guitar lessons can take you from a boring guitar player to one that has a little bit of soul to his licks. Nothing bores the crowd more than your typical notes and lack of soul in your touch. By infusing a bit of blues into your playing, you open yourself and anyone you're playing with to a whole another world out there.
So, how do you add that touch of blues to your playing? With blues guitar lessons, you need both skill and practice. Don't be scared by listening to the greats, you too can learn what they know although you'll bring your own touch to it and a different style too. One thing you need, in addition to your lessons, is feedback on what you've played. Good blues guitar lessons will offer you honest, open feedback about how you're doing. While online lessons are a fantastic starting point, at some point, you're going to need to talk with someone in the know who can critique your performance and offer you constructive criticism.
Another must to go with your lessons is quality band backgrounds to compliment your blues training. It's hard to play the blues by yourself, without quality tracks playing behind you. Look online and in various music stores for the accompanying dvds or CDs to go with your training.
While most beginners need lessons aimed at the newcomer, more advanced blues guitar lessons are also available. One lesson is going to build on the next and at some point you have to move on up. Look for the level you need and dive right in. If you're looking for quality instructors for live instruction, check their qualifications, listen to them play and establish a rapport to see if the two of you are compatible as teacher/students.
While it would be nice if you could simply pick up the guitar whip out the licks like B.B. King, that's not always the case. With practice and then some more practice, your sense of soul will emerge and the blues guitar lessons well be a thing of the past.
