BC-157 • Easy Songs For Stage 5

The Justinguitar.com Beginner's Course

More songs for the Stage 5 peeps, lotta blues at this stage!

And now that you have so many 7 chords in your repertoire you can play a HUGE Number of Blues Standards in a four keys. Below the well known songs are basic "12 Bar Blues" chord progressions for you to play about with, any 12 bar blues song will work in any key, you should find the key that works best for you voice if you want to sing, or the one you find most comfortable to play if you want to just play!

Blues is awesome on guitar and after the Beginner Course many people move onto the Blues Lead Guitar Course which starts with pretty easy beginner level stuff and gets into Intermediate level techniques and concepts. If that's a path you might dig, then make sure you add a couple of blues songs to your repertoire for regular practice!

Hope it's going great for you and you're enjoying your new musical self :)
