  • Hi GMC-ers!

    Welcome to my new blues lesson! As you might have noticed, this is not a traditional blues pattern, this is a bit freer than my previous blues lessons. Also the chord progression is different from them.

    In this lesson we won’t play only from beat to beat, but I tried to tie the beats together. I use many bended notes and slides, and beside the A pentatonic and A blues pentatonic, I often use notes of the A minor.

    In this lesson I use the four modes of the A pentatonic and the A blues pentatonic and on some places I play some extra notes which belong to the A minor, and it’s different modes. These scales are used at the melodic parts. The first part of the chord progression I use a simple pentatonic or blues pentatonic scale and it changes only in the second part to A minor.

    The chord progression is:

    A7/ A7/ D7/ A7/ F/ E E G G#/A7/ E7

    I hope this will be a useful lesson for everyone! Have a nice practice!

    This lesson contains the following techniques:



    -hamme ons

    -pull offs

    Have fun!
