The art of Electric Blues/Rock Lead playing is studied in detail using all the must have techniques such as vibrato, bends, slides, hammer on and pull offs . You will also learn how to inject the emotion and feel of the blues into your playing, good blues needs to be felt as well as heard.

With this in mind pattern1 with the attached BB King box will be the only scale shapes used in this course allowing you to concentrate on playing authentic blues to a high standard and not just running through numerous scale patterns. That comes in future courses.

You will be shown how to improvise your own solos and will soon have the ability, knowledge and confidence to make up solos on the cuff and be able to attend Jam nights and be up to "Band Performance" levels.

Specially written solos in various styles of blues in 2  different keys are included and come with full backing tracks for you to play the pieces to or improvise your own ideas over.

My "Electric Blues/Rock Guitar Courses"  are a large and extensive look at electric blues/rock guitar and has been split into various parts, all parts work together or can be used as stand alone units to assist you in different aspects of the your playing.
