- Slow Blues

The following video has some solid licks that contain the "secret sauce"!  Feel free to take from it as you would like!  Or, if you are a current student, you might consider using this etude as a good learning-vehicle during our lessons together.  

 

This Blues Etude Demonstrates The Following:

 

- A simple rhythmic structure that gives you complete control over the start, finish and total duration of each phrase.

 

- A simple structure for when to play chord tones so that your soloing always fits the chord progression.

 

- An underlying accent pattern that invites your phrasing to flow naturally with musical momentum from point to point.

 

- A series of phrases that are built from smaller components that make it easy to reuse and reorganize in the name of being creative and expressive.  

 

- A set of techniques designed to help you get your scale sounding more and more like authentic blues.

 

- And more.
