Blues is at the core of jazz, rock, country, bluegrass and a host of other musical styles, and without it any improvisation is going to sound tame. In this video, I will present four important points: (1) Explain the value- and limitations- of blues scales and demonstrate the difference between major and minor blues scales. (2) Stress the importance of simplicity and repetition in blues playing. (3) Give you a selection of blues licks to work with. (4) Show you how, by using a simple finger pattern, you can play blues improvisation with ease in absolutely any key. Sound too good to be true? This is the single most valuable thing I have ever discovered about improvisation! I will provide backing tracks, so that you can try everything over the same chords as I am using.
