In Part 3 of Intro to the Blues, Neil mentions that he will discuss "turnarounds" in greater detail later on. I went through all the lessons and he only touched on it briefly. Are there lessons on turnarounds somewhere else on the site?written by mrp777, November 19, 2017

This introduction to blues is awesome!!! It's really interesting to see how to build a simple blues out of a few simple things. Thanks a lot Neil. I'm very eager to discover the next parts of this lesson and add some leads on top of that.written by baptiste, March 12, 2012
