Advanced Blues in Six Weeks is the next step from the already classic Electric Blues In Six Weeks. This series goes deep into the possibilities of blues soloing, analysing the true diversity between between some of the best blues guitar players who have explored the genre. From the string bending and jazz concepts of BB King to the amazing fast blues rock runs of Joe Bonamassa. Concepts such as diminished scale usage made popular by Robben Ford are demonstrated and taught for practical application.
Week One includes rapid fire blues licks using hammer on and pull off ideas, left hand strength development for playing stamina, dynamics and "digging in". Phrasing ideas are analysed including length of licks used in blues vs rock. String bending ideas using one and two strings are utilized along with licks that progress from slow to fast to build 'drama" within a solo.
Artists such as Larry Carlton also bring a jazz flavour to the blues and popular ideas such as playing off of the "five chord" are discussed and utilized. For anyone trying to take their playing to the next level, Advanced blues in six week will give you plenty of new ideas, licks and inspiration to help you take a further step into better understanding and playing of blues guitar.
