Here’s another cool acoustic blues guitar lesson with Marty Schwartz… checkout the double stop riff that comes out of the E pentatonic minor scale, it sounds really sweet!
Of course if you want to, you can also play these blues licks on an electric guitar, they work just as well on either acoustic or electric. Once you’ve got that double stop down, feel free to experiment with the rest of the blues lick and create your own riff out of it. You’ve got the rest of that pentatonic minor scale to work with – every single note in that scale is going to sound sa-weet!
Also check out that bluesy sounding quarter note bend he’s got going. You’ll have to work on getting the bend up to the right place, as you might find it more natural to go to a full half tone bend there, but work on the quarter, you’ll find it is worth it.
Once you’ve got a handle on that blues riff, the best way to apply it is with a blues jam track. The second half of the video is simply Marty laying down a blues groove for you to solo over top of, so have as much fun as you can with this one!
