Pop, Rock, R and B, Jazz, Gospel, Hip Hop, and other styles of contemporary American music (even Bluegrass) rely heavily on the Blues. If you feel like you come off a bit “too classical-sounding", this course on blues can help you hone your playing to sound more authentic within Blues-related idioms.
In the course you’ll discover:
-Blues as a literary form, and how this translates into effective melodic expression
-Harmonic, Melodic, and Rhythmic applications
-Creating harmonic tension and richness by combining two blues scales (this is a big thing many people miss out on!)
-Generating rhythmic tension through the manipulation of triplets, and how to increase fluency with this under-used rhythmic muscle.
-Bass lines & comping patterns in 12 bar blues within various grooves
This course includes five lesson videos, two MP3's, and a worksheet.
