Hi Ivan,

Great blues lessons, They are helping me considerably, I know that the Blues has come up many times before but I am currently struggling with the best way to practice, I am familiar with the major and minor pentatonics and blues scales, but i still struggle to mix them to sounds bluesy, I love the way old blues players sound but also modern blues rock players such as bonamassa etc. Do you have any advice for the most efficient way and how to practice this?

I saw your explanation in a previous thread...

Simple exercise example of this concept would be:

1. take a blues progression and play it on PC/player.
2. play up&down minor pentatonic box 1 to feel the sound
3. shift the minor box 1 to minor box 5 (as the guys explained) and play up and down again (you will notice it has a much more country vibe to it now, when it's plain major)
4. try to focus yourself on the root notes in both 2 and 3 exercises, stop on the root and sing it possibly and continue picking up/down
5. after a while of doing this try taking one simple blues lick and repeat it in exercises 2 and 3 manner. Play the same lick in major and minor positions, BUT when you are in the major try to land on the note where the root is (it is on different position then in minor box 1).

Can you explain this further? or have any other methods you advise?

Hi all, I am Nick and from Plymouth UK, I am 36 ad have been playing (or tinkering) for longer than I can remember. What a great place for musicians! I hope to learn as much a as possible from you all to make me a better player and musician. I have had numerous guitars etc over the years but have settled on a fender us Strat through a Marshall Vintage Modern combo.

So i'd just like to say hello to all gmc members out there!
