Learning a language to take your blues a bit further.
Music is much like learning a language.
And to teaching that language. If U R a teacher and have one pupil
its said that they R 2 persons learning the language.
So thats why I wrote 1 article and 1 lesson for about 5 years ago.
Both scripts turns to guitarplayers and r real essential and basic.
This is a link to the article here on this forum;
My Personal Suggestions/Advices For Improvising (Shooting) Over A Bluesy Vamp.
And here comes the lesson whit some more theorystuff;
How to use and play a ii-V7-I progression properly.
U´ll need this information for develop skills playing Swing/Jumpblues, Bluesfusion,
Bebop, Jazzblues and even some Progg.blues. If you want me to I could try to
write something usefull about reharmonizationtechniques.
If U have any questions U can either send me a message och post a reply to the threads.
I´ve posted these subjects in the forum "Blues Guitar Playing".
I just wanted to tip U about these 2 scripts.
(It not unusal that the rythm of a blues is swinging in 6/8. This is a fusion of
a rehamonized 12 bar blues skeleton. To get it sound a bit more rockjazzfusion
I use the Melodic minor, aka The Jazzscale. You´ll find the
scale and the belonging harmonised chordscale as a bonus in my lesson.)
Here´s the link to ma playlist "Rock the 12 Bar Blues Variations."
That list contains lot of creative reharmonizations of the 12 Bar Blues.
