Guitar Lesson Overview

Here is perhaps the MOST common chord progression in popular music. It is a simple 1-5-6-4 progression that I am sure you have heard a million times. It's really fun to play with these chords I show you in the video.

These are great sounding chords in themselves, and putting together this way makes them very easy to play. The names of the chords may sound advanced, but they are really easy to play chords, since it's mostly a matter of sliding your left hand up the neck, and only moving a finger here and there.

The tab, notation and pdf files are my own work and represent my interpretation of the songs. These files are put together and formatted in Notepad, transformed to MS Word and converted to pdf format to save or print the composition. And, if available, a link back to the Tutorial. Tab files with references to any artist are not meant to be actual transcriptions of copyrighted material.

The lick samples are gathered from talented online teachers; and the related audio clips are extracted from their tutorial pages. Many tabs have been transposed in the Key of Am - at the 5th fret (a popular key when playing the Blues) or the Key of Em - the "guitar key" (all open strings belong to this scale and the most common key for Delta Blues).
