Here’s a great performance through two choruses of a 12-bar blues. Tim uses fingerstyle throughout, but in a rather intuitive manner; however, hybrid picking (and even pure plectrum with judicious use of fretting-hand muting) would be equally valid. Regardless, I’ve indicated in the second voice (stems down) where a thumb (or pick in hybrid picking) might be appropriate. All the devices discussed are present here with the addition of the occasional use of open strings and muted notes to ‘fill in’ some rhythmic gaps – for example in bars 14,19 and 24. Take this slowly and, above all, rhythmically relaxed but precise. It’s imperative that you know where you are in the 12-bar sequence at every given moment.
