Blues Guitar Lessons - #2 Four On The Floor - Blues Architect

Published on 21 March 2016
FULL COURSE, TAB, JAM TRACKS: Blues guitar lessons: Most of us tend to just solo on the fly, but what if you had a blueprint, something to help you organize your improvising? In Blues Architect, David Hamburger shows you how to construct ear-bending blues solos by working with the underlying structure of any blues progression or vamp. Using major and minor pentatonic scales, mixolydian scales, chromatic passing notes and altered tones, you'll learn how to develop tasty, soulful solos packed with tension and release that gradually build over two or three choruses to a compelling climax. Instead of playing the same old licks, you'll discover how to use root targeting, call-and-response phrasing, hybrid grip picking, double stops, triads and chord hits to create dynamic, exciting solos over everything from a Texas shuffle or a blues-rock groove to a New Orleans-style funk feel.
