Blues for Piano and Keyboard
Blues Piano Lessons – Chapter 12 Overview
Once again, we’re digging into some fresh material in this online piano lesson. In chapter 12, we’ll be taking apart a Rhythm and Blues Gospel song, note for note. We’ll analyze all the blues riffs and music theory, and then figure out how to put it all back together on YOUR keyboard.
This lesson is jam packed with over 20 new blues piano riffs! When you learn this many new blues riffs all at once, it can really be a challenge. However, when you learn them in the context of a song, it turns into just pure fun!

Because this video is an overview of some of the highlights of chapter 12, I’ll be playing a few different sample sections from the piano lesson:
First, we’ll take a look at a video of the full song used in this piano lesson – you’ll be able to see all of the blues riffs that we’ll be studying. In addition, you’ll be able to see the solo section where we’re going to be studying how to put together a keyboard solo to really rip it up when it’s your turn to shine!
In the full version of this lesson, there is a super-slow motion video version of the full song so you can really see exactly what’s going on. And remember, once we get to the section of the lesson where we’re looking at each of the blues riffs in detail, we’ll study every single note in up-close slow motion. In addition, we’ll study all of the music theory behind these riffs – there’s lots to dig into here!
In the next video contained within this quick piano lessons overview – we’ll take a look at the section where we go through all of the chords used in the song. In this section, we won’t be looking at any of the blues riffs – that will come later in the lesson. This section simply goes through every chord used so that we have a solid foundation on which we can build all these fantastic blues piano riffs.
Finally, we’ll look at some video footage from the section of the piano lesson where we zero in on the individual blues piano riffs. This is the nitty-gritty study section, but because you’re getting a ton of funky blues riffs under your hands, it’s totally a blast! Enjoy…
