Wonderful Ivan, I can smell the smoky club atmosphere. Even though I wasn't even born back then I feel nostalgic about these licks..!

Nice feeling there
Sweet!! Thanks Ivan.
Great blues solo!
Great lesson, good job Ivan. Although i think you missed some notes at video 5 - the end of it. A lot of notes are missing in the tab.
Thanks man. I maybe improvised a little up there. Don't worry work your way as you suits you the best! Cheers!
great lesson.......give us more like this.
Hi Ivan, a quick query about the bit in lesson 3. It contains the notes A, Bb, G, and E. This is neither G major or G min, as G maj has B natural, and G min has Eb. Is it just a mixture of the 2, ie G maj but making use of the minor 3rd? I would have classed that as G minor! As you can tell, I'm a little confused about this small part. I suppose it could also be a mixture of G min pent and G maj pent. What's going on here?!!!
Yeah mate you are right, it's a mixture of major and minor pentatonic which in return gives something like a dorian mode, which is great for the blues.
Hi there,excellent lesson.
Just wondering where the tabs are. Only about half of lesson # 5 are there, either in the tabs link or the bottom of the page.
Hmm, that's strange man. I can see the tabs clearly bellow every video. Also there is a complete tab page on the right. Here's a link:
If you have more problems tell me about it and I will try to get this problem fixed for you ASAP.
I also noticed the lowest tab bar of the 5th video is kinda off.
Great lesson btw
I think the end lick makes this a bit more then lvl 3!
It's a bit more difficult I agree, but more simpler variation could be made if needed. Let me know if you need some help with this mate, I will be glad to help.
