Blues Song Riff (139)

San Francisco, California session guitarist Neal Walter is your host for the Guitar Tricks Channel. Neal has a warm, vibrant "classic rock" sound and a wealth of information about how to quickly improve your guitar playing.

Classically trained at age 7 on guitar, Neal then progressed to the styles of Jazz, Country and Blues with a focus on Rock guitar. He currently plays guitar in the power-rock quartet NTL and is a session player for various local artists.

For the beginning to intermediate guitarist, Neal shares his insight to soloing over the whole fretboard, and how to use trills and slides to flavor your lead lines. If you only Neal combines these elements to make a riff that you can play through a whole blues progression: Hammer-on, double stops, finger roll, slide, chord tones. This is a great way to better understand mixing techniques to create a riff in the blues format. Key of A.

Special guest: Alexander!

Page InfoThe Tab and Notation 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.

The Lick samples are gathered from talented online teachers and tabbed in the key in which they were found. Many 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).
