Today I bring you a lesson that looks at the tonal advantages we can get by playing in a finger style over a blues rock style.
The lesson looks at how we assign our thumb and fingers to strings for better/more economical playing and the benefits this can give us when playing lead and rhythm parts.
The piece is focused around an A chord vamp with a climb from D/F# to G and back to A as the turnaround, the static harmony allows for a free jamming over an A blues but I've made the phrases follow the chord movements so the solo feels focused but have fun with the jam track to fully explore. Most of the solo is in A Blues but there are a few A pentatonic major lines in there too so take a moment to listen to what each one gives the music so you can use them in your own playing.
Have fun and get those fingers working!
