Fundamentals of Acoustic Blues > I - IV - V Progression in E

In this lesson on fundamentals I show you a simple 1, 4, 5 progression in the key of E. If this is new to you, just remember to take your time and give your mind plenty of time to digest. Practice until it becomes second nature!

We also focus on a simple walking bass line to accompany another player or to add some dynamics to your playing.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Corey

I like this getting into the fundamentals and then building on them.  Learning different ways to  move improvisationally within a given progression outside of the context of a 'formal song' is interesting learning,  as well as in that context, which is great.
