Grooving & Jamming the Blues: Blues Rhythm & Soloing II
For guitar players who want to learn how to play rhythm and solo over blues changes. We will take a basic 12 bar blues as our background format and use ideas based on scales, riffs and chord shapes to learn the art of soloing. This will be a lot of fun for those folks who have a little background in playing blues Learn classic solo lines from players like Robert Johnson, Eric Clapton and many more. Some background in playing blues rhythm is useful, but other than that just a desire to put some heart (and muscle!) into your guitar playing.
