DVD - Jamming the Blues for Electric & Acoustic Guitar
taught by Fred Sokolow
Playing the blues is a great way to lose the blues, and jamming with other people is one of the most fun things to do in life! Using classics like Stormy Monday, The Thrill is Gone, Keys to the Highway, Big Boss Man, Come Back Bay and Every Day I Have the Blues as examples, Fred teaches all the skills and info you need to jam with other blues players. Covers accompaniment techniques for different rhythm grooves (shuffle beat, straight 8ths, straight 4 and rock and funk beats) and soloing strategies (key-of-E licks, four moveable blues boxes and chord-based licks). You'll also learn intros, turnarounds, the twelve-bar and eight-bar blues forms, more. Along the way, you'll get blues history and stories about the great players. Plus, all the scales, blues boxes, licks, chord shapes and tunes are written out in the accompanying PDF booklet. Other titles: Baby What Do You Want Me to Do, All the Love I Miss Loving, How Long Blues, Hesitation Blues, Stagerlee, As the Years Go Passing By and Corrine Corrina.
