Learn How to Play Blues Guitar Chords, Progressions and Music

Easy Guitar Guy's videos feature blues guitar chords, chord progressions and original blues guitar music and songs written by none other than Easy Guitar Guy himself; that's me. Hopefully, my free blues guitar lessons will inspire you to practice hard so that you can play like you were born in the Mississippi Delta and write your own compositions that will make me (and yourself, of course) very proud.

It's very gratifying to pass along the licks that I learned from some of the best blues guitar players that ever lived like Mississippi John Hurt, Muddy Waters and so many more. My goal is to build a collection of free blues guitar lessons that includes videos of all the blues licks and riffs that I know to make it easy for beginners just starting to learn.
