You're nursing your brew at the local blues jam waiting on your turn. You've got a solid six or so blues grooves under your belt but darn, someone already called the Stormy blues and that SRV jam. Next guy called the minor blues ala B.B. and then, as luck would have it, the Chicago shuffle groove in the same key you do it in. Fingers are crossed but of course cat number three calls both your slow blues and that uptempo straight-ahead thing you feel solid on.
So, you finish your beer, cross your name off the list, and head out the door promising yourself that you'll get there earlier next week. Well, sit back down my bluesy friend 'cause Corey Congilio's 50 Blues Rhythms You MUST Know will keep you there all night long.

About the Guitar Lesson Plan
Interactive Video Guitar Instruction
50 Blues Rhythms is much more than just 50 grooves you can call up at the jam. It's actually 40 different rhythmic and chord voicing approaches for the 12-bar blues that Corey demonstrates in the same key for continuity purposes. ALL of these 40 approaches can be transposed to all keys, and ALL can be combined to craft countless blues grooves that you can jam over, compose with, or use for accompaniment purposes in any blues setting. The last 10 examples illustrate how to combine various approaches from the previous 40 examples.
Unlike many of our 50 Licks courses, this one is the proverbial "Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for life" type of learning experience. You'll learn a truckload of new voicings, new rhythmic patterns, new fills and even new right-hand techniques, all of which can be combined, transcribed and crafted into countless blues applications.
You can spend years going through chord books, transcribing blues tunes, clocking what other players are doing and learning little bits and pieces here and there OR you can spend a few weeks in the shed digging into 50 Blues Rhythms You MUST Know. You'll emerge with a blues rhythm arsenal that will put you to the top of the list at the local jam and keep you on stage all night long.
