These online guitar lessons cover how to play in various music styles. Eat your vegetables! Remember that you can learn from all styles of music. DO NOT limit your listening and learning experiences to only a limited range of music.
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.
