Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members In *Lesson 2* we learn a couple of songs in the key of E. These expand on the exercises in Lesson 1 by combining them with some chord changes and arranging them in a pattern of measures. *Smokestack Blues* is an 8-bar progression over 1 chord and is a variation of Howlin’ Wolf’s Smokestack Lightning. *Blues Man* takes the idea a step further and branches into a 16-bar progression using chords I-IV-V in the key (E-A-B). Both songs are done using the Mono Bass technique in a style similar to pieces by Big Bill Broonzy, among others, and would be considered Level 1 and 2 respectively. The lesson concludes with a segment on experimenting with your own licks.
