I hope you've gotten a good workout in this tutorial. Good technique in a blues context is sort of a tricky topic, because most of the classic players didn't have an all-round good technique. They were just extremely good at certain things and made the most of it. And if your technique gets too clean and perfect, it starts to not really sound that bluesy anymore.

But the right solution isn't to not practice it, because these people lived and breathed guitar 24/7. The right solution is to be very conscious of what guitar sounds you like and work hard at the ability to imitate those! And exercises like the ones I've shown today can help open those doors for you, so have fun with it!
