All Over Blues Lead Guitar

The Blues Guitar Lessons

Continue your Blues Lead Guitar journey and learn to play all over the neck!

Welcome to All Over Blues Lead Guitar, the second Blues Lead module where we expand our Minor Pentatonics to cover the whole fingerboard! It's important that you have already completed the Essential Blues Lead Guitar Module because that covered important concepts and techniques that we'll be building on in this series!

We'll be learning Patterns 3, 4 and 5 of the Minor Pentatonic, licks and sweet spots from each pattern and how to use them as well as more important technique mechanics, concepts and tricks to help you become a confident blues lead guitar player!

Welcome To All Over Blues Lead Guitar (Module 2)

This module replaces the Blues Lead Guitar 2 (available here if you need it, well delete when this revised and improved version is complete) course which was filmed long ago, way before I had HD video and was pretty new to the whole online lessons thing. This course is WAY better and as I type this I'm still tweaking the later lessons so not sure exactly how many there will be in this series, hope to get it finished in the next 2 weeks.

BL-601 • Introduction To 5 Pattern Play
In this course intro lesson I start with a 2 minute jam where I use a bunch of the concepts that we'll be exploring in the course and then there's a talk about building a framework and a general course outline. We also look at the advantages of learning all 5 Minor Pentatonic patterns and ways to think about them.

BL-602 • Pattern 3 Of The Minor Pentatonic Scale
So now we start making our way up the neck by looking at Pattern 3 of the Minor Pentatonic scale and also look at where the Blue Notes are and where you can rech them. Make sure you remember where the root notes are and work on joining this information into the patterns you already know.

BL-603 • 5 Licks Using The Minor Pentatonic Scale Pattern 3
Last lesson we looked at Pattern 3 of the MinPent and now it's time (as usual) to learn some awesome words that live in this pattern so we can start making music with it! Learning words in each pattern is essential if you want to communicate an idea. Don't be an alphabet player!

BL-604 • Adding Vibrato to String Bends In Blues
This is one technique question I get asked all the time so in this lesson I try to give you a run down of how to approach adding vibrato to your bends, the 'mechanics' and the variables to experiement with to help you find your own voice!

BL-605 • Pattern 4 of The Minor Pentatonic Scale
you propbably hip with the program by now right? This week we're learning Pattern 4 of the Minor Pentatonic, which notes to curl, which notes to bend and different fingering approaches for this new pattern!

BL-606 • 5 Licks Using The Minor Pentatonic Scale Pattern 4
Any guesses what we'll be up to in this lesson? If you said we'd be learning awesome licks from Pattern 4 of the MinPent so we can say stuff that makes sense with our new scale pattern then you're probably the kind of dude that can tie their shoelaces without help :) Lets get into it!

BL-607 • Unison Bend Technique
I love Unison bends. A friend of my said one "why play one note when you can play two" ha ha. These are a great way to get a real gnarly and aggressive sound which I love using for a climax in a solo.
