In the June post students were introduced to open position power chords. This month we’ll be plugging those chords into a standard 12 bar blues that students can utilize them.
There is no need to get fancy right away as a straight ahead quarter note rhythm will suffice until students are comfortable with the progression. Using a 12 bar blues for open power chords is a great way to start jamming with students – solo as they lay down the rhythm or add a second rhythm part on top. Next month we’ll take these open power chords to the next level!
