Absoultly great blues soloing Ivan, Learning this right away!
Great stuff. Always room for blues. Thanks
nice playing ivan great feelings
AT about 18 seconds...HOLY CRAP nice lick man!
Very bluesy indeed! Shows that a lot can be done with the pentatonic scale where I find myself stuck to the same licks too often.
Thanks guys, the intermediate/advanced blues lesson coming up by the end of the February.
First off, amazing!
Second off, I'm hesitant to say it's too difficult for me at this time, so I'll at least give it a try and if not I'll head back to easier vid's and keep on practicing! That last blues solo video was right in my skill range, really fun to play, I'm sure this one will be fun for me to play someday too =)
yet again you fail to disapoint me ivan, another amazing blues lesson! just keep them coming lol peace man
Thanks a lot guys.
I can do another blues lesson in beginner style anytime man!
great stuff, just a comment though - the tab on page 6 of the lessson is wrong but since you play it slowly it was easy to pickup the correct way.
Nice, u really know how to make it sound right ! Will i be able to get the right speed just by practicing ??? Wish so ! (Some notes are uncorrect on the tab but was glad to be able to pick them right.)
Of course you will be able to reach the speed (and more important the sound) just by practicing. You can do a lot better than this imo, just practice, there is no science behind it. I'm not talented of anything just playing and practicing as much as I can to get it as much as good as I can.
This lesson is fantastic, cool and a lot of fun. I have a question about the tab notation. I understand the triplets, but what does it mean when there is a "s" above the notation. Thanks in advance. This riff is a smiler
Thanks a lot man. Regarding "s" letter it stands for staccato. It indicates that notes are sounded in a detached and distinctly separate manner, with silence making up the latter part of the time allocated to each note.
Ahh, thanks for explaining that...again, this lesson is really a great one......
No problem man, glad I could help. And thanks
Damn Ivan... These are lessons you just cant resist:O AWESOME!
How do you rake?
You rake by basically muting the strings with your left hand and strumming/picking them with the right hand.
Thank you, this has also some cool country'ish licks!!! Sure to improve my lick vocabulary.
No problem man, glad to help
Hi, in lesson 6, there's an E chord in the tab which is throwing me! I've watched the vid loads to see it, but it doesn't seem to be there. I can pick up what you're doing from the vid though, hopefully! Thanks for a great lesson!
Hi, could you just explain the turnaround chords? Is there a 'formula' which gives the correct chords for a turnaround based on the key of the piece? I notice the use of the G7 - does this come from the B natural minor scale? Still trying to get the hang of this darned theory!!!
that was killer, looking forward to the advanced lesson!
I could be wrong, but I don't think video 6 matches the tab. it looks like you play a couple different things. artistic leeway?
You are right mate, sorry for that one!
Here's a tab for what I played in the lesson:
I really like your solo. I am curious what scales/mental picture do you use for the various parts? I guess what I am asking is how do I improvise like this without just memorizing your solo.
I usually keep my mind around pentatonic scale when I start to solo, but later on I try to forget the notes and just play a nice melody.
If you are making first steps with improvising, it would be good to learn the 5 boxes of the pentatonic scale well. After that it will be easier to add notes that are needed.
If you need any assistance with this, let me know, I'll try to help. Cheers
fantastic sounding licks here! love the groove a lot, have to learn it
Spent few days almost exclusively on this lesson, I really dig this style. And this lesson really has nice vibe...
