About the Guitar Lesson Plan
Interactive Video Guitar Instruction
Optimized for intermediate to early-advanced players, Bluesology presents in-depth examinations of the blues from a theoretical and harmonic perspective. Students are introduced to concepts in in bite-size chunks and can then apply them over supporting practice rhythm tracks.
Bluesology is presented in 2 volumes and covers Dominant Blues Progressions, Dominant Blues Solos 1, Dominant Blues Solos 2, Turnarounds, Minor Blues Progressions, Minor Blues Solos, Blues Techniques and Jazz Blues. Each section includes 20 full-length interactive video lessons, charts, practice rhythm tracks and text guides.
Combined, Bluesology Volumes 1 & 2 are an intensive 8-month study program at TrueFire University. Realistically, it would take much longer to fully digest all of the material presented in the course. Bluesology’s practical intent however, is to provide the student with a comprehensive resource that they can work through at their own pace, cherry-picking sections and lessons as needed.
Bluesology is not a "licks," "solos" or "style" course, rather Bluesology is an intensive study that drills down on the theoretical and harmonic building blocks that apply to all styles of electric blues guitar.
About Your Instructor
One of the most popular TrueFire Educators, Brad Carlton is living proof that monster players don't all live in the big music meccas. Based in St. Petersburg, Florida, our home city, he's our hired gun - the guy we call in to perform the tough lessons when the author is not available. Brad, who has been teaching and leading his own bands for more than 20 years, prides himself on his versatility. His rep in the region is that he can play anything. Brad brilliantly performs an extensive lesson on Eddie Van Halen licks an exploration of London blues along with interpretations of Vernon Reid, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Mike Stern and even some 18th Century parlor guitar.
