As said in the previous lesson, one advantage of the key of A is that we have the root of each chord on open strings. The 5th string is A (I), the 4th string is D (IV) and the 6th string is E (V). We will not run into the same kind of problems as we did in E each time we had to play the B7-chord.

I assume that your thumb has got some independence. But just to be sure, we go another round with only the bass notes, now in the key of A. This time we will work with the Blues progression 2.
