After this intense course, you will probably find your improvisations take on a new level of vitality and excitement.

The course covers six main techniques - vertical, horizontal and diagonal playing, combined with fretboard knowledge, arpeggios and double stops. All the techniques are chosen because of their usefulness to playing the Blues.
