In this really old video guitar lesson I just dug up you will learn a cool blues turnaround in the key of A. I call this the “Blizzard Blues Turnaround” because I filmed this the day after a Blizzard hit Ohio.
I was reminded of this video today because as I’m writing this on April 9th….it’s freezing and the ground is covered with snow. Not a blizzard…but it sure ain’t Spring weather.
I’m sure glad I’ve become much more comfortable in front of a camera over the years 🙂 The video is low quality…sorry about that, but the tab is below as well. I will probably re shoot the video at some point, but wanted to share it while there was a blues chill in my bones.
(Video Guitar Lesson)
A turnaround takes place in the last 2 measures of a 12 bar blues. In this case, this is a turnaround for a blues in the key of A. There are all kinds of ways you could play a blues in A. I have given you a really basic one to get you started lower on the page.
But whatever variation of a 12 bar blues in A you are playing, just replace the last 2 measures with the 2 measure turnaround below.

Basic Blues in A
Here’s a basic blues in the key of A you can use to plug in this turnaround. Check out the guitar lesson below for another video guitar lesson where I teach this basic blues.
