Beginner Blues Strumming

Below is the lesson for ‘Beginner Blues Strumming’ by Rock Class 101.

Helpful Tips

In this lesson, we will be learning 2 rhythms for a 12 Bar Blues in the key of A. The rhythms are labeled as: Form 1 and Form 2. In form 1, we will only be strumming chords, while form 2 has us adding a slap (backbeat) on beat 2. Blues is a great starting point for getting comfortable with down and up strumming as it only contains 3 chords.
