A month-long intensive blues training course that will fast-track your technical ability.
Whereas the Lead Phrasing course covers artistic approaches and imaginative ideas to improve your playing, this course builds sheer technique and facility.
If you are currently held back by your rhythm, speed, fretboard knowledge, and ease of finding the right notes, then this course will give you a systematic and comprehensive personalised plan that will increase your technical proficiency in the Blues dramatically. After this intense course, you will probably find your improvisations take on a new level of vitality and excitement.
On the course can print off a log book to keep track of practice.
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. The different areas are given exercises of increasing difficulty and complexity, so you can keep track of your progress and pick exercises which are at your level.
You will need to know (as a minimum)
There is no upper-limit to the skill level of this course, as even experienced players will be pushed to their edge of their ability.
If you don't meet the requirements for this course, then consider taking 'Blues Basics', the foundational course which gets you started playing the Blues.
