A Pragmatic Cheat Sheet for Blues Guitar

These are basically the condensed notes of my past googling and YouTube sessions. Writing it down in a structured form helps me to memorize.

Depth and scope are defined by my personal current knowledge and needs. ‘Pragmatic’ means that

  • I mostly avoid standard music notation in favor of tablature (‘tabs’)
  • I focus on topics that relate to Blues, guitar and what I wish I had learned earlier.
  • I am German, but write in English, since it is easier to transfer from my sources.
  • Scales use international notation (A, A♯/B♭, B, C, …) instead of German convention (A, A♯/B, H, C, …).
