If you’re a blues player, that goes for turnarounds too. In fact, a big repertoire of turnarounds may contain some of your best friends. Listen to your favorite blues guitarists and take notice of how many different turnarounds they have at their command, and how they’ll use turnarounds as intros and outros as well.
Robbie Calvo’s 25 Blues Turnarounds You Must Know will stock up, and spice up, your repertoire of turnarounds with an extensive range of 25 versatile turnarounds covering blues scale turnarounds, dominant arpeggio turnarounds, double stop turnarounds, chordal turnarounds, and spicy chromatic turnarounds.
”The two-bar turnaround section at the end of a typical blues progression is an essential part of any guitarist's repertoire, which is why I've filmed my favorite selections of turnarounds all in the key of E so that you can mix and match them for your jams, gigs, and sessions. Most of these turnarounds can be moved to work in other keys simply by shifting the patterns and phrases up or down the fretboard.”
For each of the 25 blues turnarounds featured in this course, Robbie will first perform the turnaround over a jam track, and then break it down for you note-by-note emphasizing the essential techniques and harmonic concepts in play.
”I've demonstrated each phrase in context, at fast and slow tempos, and broken each idea down slowly and in full detail for "real time learning." This core course is perfect for any aspiring blues guitarist and the perfect chop and repertoire builder for the seasoned pro.”
All of the turnarounds are tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes. You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop and slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons. Plus, Robbie generously includes all of the backing tracks for you to work with on your own.
