  • Hello GMC,

    This is the last lesson of the blues course called: "Mixing Major and Minor Boxes in Blues". The concept of the whole series is for you to get yourself familiar with both major and minor pentatonic boxes, and ways to mix them naturally to create a contrast between major and minor, which is one of the essenses of the blues music, but other styles of music as well.

    This concept can be applied to any form of music, not just blues. By studying both kinds of boxes in parallel you increase ways to combine existing and making new melodic phrases. In this study, rhythmic structure between phrases was mostly the same or similar. This enables you to focus effectively on the melody itself.

    If you haven't checked other lessons, I advise you to master them all, because this way you will acquire the skill of moving across the neck and switching major and minor patterns seamlessly.
