Now that we know what to do with our left hand ... let's try the right hand!

Use two fingers of your right hand. I suggest the middle finger on the E and the pinky on the G. But you can use any that are comfortable for you personally, with the exception of the thumb. Save the thumb for the low note of the right hand melody, the C.

Notice that we play the E and G together in a swinging blues rhythm. Then do it again but the next time end on the note C below the E and G. That way you are using all of the notes of a C major chord - C, E, G - in order to create little melody for our blues song.
