  • HEY GMC!

    This month i've put together something a little different to our normal blues explorations. In this lesson and some future lessons I want to take a look at applying our blues phrasing and general love of the blues sound into other genres and how to use them in almost any musical situation.

    In this lesson we take a look at a tune in E lydian with the idea to approach playing lydian ideas that also weave effortlessly into more blues like phrases.

    Theres two scale shapes to know for this lesson, the first being E lydian and the second being the G# Blues scale, the use of the G# Blues is a nice little trick to finding that blues sound over Major (I or IV) chords.

    KEY: E Lydian
    TEMPO: 80BPM
    TIME: 4/4

    GUITAR: Gibson SG 60's tribute (P90's)


    || E | E F#add11 | G#m7add11 | G#m7add11 F#add11 ||
