  • Hi GMC!

    In this blues solo lesson, we will focus on the feel, perhaps the most important thing to play this style.
    It's a classic 12bars blues progression in the key of C, with very slow tempo.
    Concerning the scales, I use a combination of Cminor pentatonic scale, Cminor Blues and CMajor pentatonic scale.

    We gonna work on phrasing, vibrato, bending and the idea is to leave space between the notes and phrases : try to let them "breathe"...and "speak"...
    Something important in the blues is also the notion of Question & Answer :
    first phrase is the question, the next is the answer...and so on. It's a commun technique to improvise and build a good solo.

    Ok, now it's time play!

    Have fun,
    Stephane
