What happens when you throw a little funk into a blues guitar lesson?
Well, you end up with the final day of my 5-Day Blues guitar Challenge.
That’s right, I’m going to be showing you how to funkify your blues guitar playing.
It will seem complicated or overwhelming at first, but the key here is to learn this blues progression in chunks.
There’s going to be a rhythm component, a fretting component, and then the fretboard placement component. So, with that being said, hang on and let’s get funky!
Just as a reminder, this is just one blues guitar lesson in a series where I’ll teach you 5 super fun blues progressions that will help you reboot your guitar practice.
And if you want to learn the guitar practice method that has changed the lives of over 21,000 guitar players, you NEED to check out my guitar-reboot workshop to ensure you get the most out of your guitar practice.

Blues Guitar Lesson #4: Rhythmic Phrasing is King
In this blues guitar lesson, I am really trying to push the envelope on your rhythmic skills. This blues progression is going to require counting and concentration — so, be ready for that!
I’ll go through this blues guitar lesson by layering on the three different concepts. Those concepts are the rhythmic syncopation, the fingering, and the fretboard positions.
For the rhythmic part, I really want you to try just strumming the guitar percussively — without fretting.
Additionally, it helps to count out loud as you strum the rhythm.
From there, the fingering isn’t too complicated. The good news is that once you learn this one pattern, you just need to apply it to different parts of the fretboard.
Another part to look out for is the muting.
Be sure to watch the full video lesson to see exactly what I’m talking about!
