Blues Guitar Lesson #2: 3 Positions, 1 Chord Shape
In today’s blues guitar lesson, you’re going to use the D chord shape in a slightly unconventional manner.
The Triple Threat progression uses 1 chord shape in three different positions to play the 12-bar blues. And you guessed it — that chord shape is D.
Another great aspect of the Triple Threat blues guitar progression is that it is an awesome gateway into fingerpicking.
I know TONS of guitar players who are intimidated by fingerpicking. However, I can’t think of a better way to introduce fingerpicking than with this progression.
You’ll be using your thumb to play the bass notes in this chord progression, and your index and middle finger to play the chord notes.
The key is to introduce elements of fingerpicking one at a time, so be sure to follow along with the video lesson!
Don’t rush this lesson, and be sure to take advantage of the looped play-along at the end of the video.
