How to Play “Sweet Home Chicago” – Blues Guitar Lesson
This video doesn’t teach you how to play the whole tune. But if you’re new to guitar and chording the blues, you might get something out of it.
BTW: An update to the plugin that provides the forum for this site is the reason this video is loading in it’s own window. Sorry….

How to Play “Bring It On Home To Me” – Blues Guitar Lesson
Once again, I don’t think these Sam Cooke videos show you how to play the whole tune. I learned this tune a few decades ago, but the version I learned, didn’t sound anything like this. Still… there is some fairly good basic blues instruction in this, so I thought I would pass it along.

GUITAR THEORY: Arranging Stacked Arpeggios
Andrew Wasson says, “Arpeggios can be overlaid or stacked into arrangements on the guitar both vertically, as well as, horizontally. Plus, these arpeggio shapes can also be built into arrangements that move through various harmonic qualities. In other words, this process could be applied to where a single arpeggio is moved into upper octaves spread over, or across the guitar fret-board within one chord type. Or, arpeggios could be “grouped in” with several harmonies. In short, there are a couple of angles for you to approach this from. I do my best within this video lesson to explain each of the systems.”
I found this very interesting, and certainly gives me something to think about.

Soloing Over a Dominant 7th Chord
Steve Krenz from Gibson’s Skill House has a great video lesson here that shows you how to solo over a dominant 7th chord.
I thought this might be a little too basic to post, but the theory behind it is good. For example: In the key of C, you would play over the G7 using the notes from the Fmaj scale, which is called the mixolydian mode in the key of C.
I don’t typically think this way. I usually go for the G minor penatonic scale, and then depending on the tune, I might take the last two bars over an B#dim7. This is particualary good when you find yourself at a party with someone who is an advanced rhythem player, AND you find yourself soloing to some tune you never heard before. By the time you hit that B#dim7 over the G7… it just wants to resolve… and at this point, it doesn’t care what the next chord is…. 😉
LOL… anyway, you can find the hand out for this lesson in pdf form here.
