There’s more to playing the blues than just learning blues guitar chord progressions for beginners. If you are a beginner when it comes to playing the blues there are a few things you should know first. Playing blues guitar is different than other types of playing as it involves certain chord progressions and repetitive sequences of them. It’s not quite as free, but at the same time, because it is defined in many ways it allows you to have a lot of freedom when playing.
If you are a beginning guitar player you may want to consider if this is where you really want to start your education. Unless you are very interested in playing the blues I would reconsider beginning with this style of playing. It is a lot of fun and there are lots of people who enjoy playing this way. I am one of them, but there are lots of other things to learn if you aren’t going to really get into the blues. It all just depends on what you want to do with your playing. There’s no right or wrong way to learn to play.
But, if you’ve learned a bit about guitar and can play some and want to learn how to jam with blues players, then by all means, delve in.
That being said, the best place to start them is with guitar chord progressions for the blues. After you see how the theory works you’ll be better prepared to tackle 12 bar and 8 bar blues progressions.
