Blues Guitar Studies
I've always felt that the best way to fully digest a Blues concept or 'trick' is to learn it in context. So when planning the Blues lessons for Grade 3 I decided to start a series of Blues Guitar Studies in which each would explore one idea in a very practical way.
After you have learned one set study I would recommend you explore the idea and learn to improvise within the framework.
My goal is to give you a series of studies so that eventually you will be able to mix them all up as you like and improvise fluently within the genre.
I'm still writing and tweaking a collection of arrangements so at this point there is no 'order' yet, but will sort that out as I get more completed. :)
Hope you enjoy them!
