  • Hi GMC, in this lesson of standard blues I am trying to show beginners especially how you could play and improvise the standard blues. The lesson is working in A minor blues scale, the intro chords are C-G5, then the melody start with Am-D5-E5.

    I did this riff in an easy way with some common technical effects. I used the tremolos and full bends many times in this lesson. Also I did several backing tracks in multiple tempos for more choices.

    The slow videos are done slowly in all 7 licks. GP5 midi file complete track with solo, bass, hammond, piano, acoustic guitar, drums.

    Also the bassist player can practice this lesson!

    Have fun with standard blues and enjoy my lesson! Feel free to ask for help and more explanations.

    The lesson contains:

    Key: A minor blues/played on low & high octaves
    Technical effects: bends/tremolos/vibes/harm notes/palm mute/slides
