12 Bar Blues 2 the A bar

Animated 12 Bar Blues 2 the A bar tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This example is the A bar from the 12 Bar Blues 2 Backing Track in the Jamzone.

The notes follow the exact same sequence as the previous E bar, except along the adjacent A and D strings:

A - A - G (slide to) A on fret 7 of the D string and hold it. Then back to the A string to play A - D - A - C. The first A bar appears after 4 E bars in the standard 12 Bar blues format.

Just like the E bar, use the 3rd finger to mute / kill the string after the first A. You can palm mute instead - the aim is to give a brief rhythmic pause between the first 2 E notes!
