Dig playing the blues? You’re in for a very sweet treat with this collection of 30 Cutting Edge Blues Licks You MUST Know from Jay-P, one of the most recorded studio musicians in all of Europe. Jay-P (Jan-Peter Beijersbergen) gets the call because he’s not only highly skilled, he has a broad range of styles and techniques at his command.
”I'm taking a modern approach to playing the blues, much like Robben Ford, Eric Johnson, Greg Koch, Carl Verheyen, Vince Gill and Joe Bonamassa would do. This leads to using different scales, modes and concepts. I like to challenge the listener a bit by mixing in a bit of country, funk, rock, and jazz influences in my lines and solos.”
We’re excited to welcome Jay-P to the family with his first TrueFire course, 30 Cutting Edge Blues Licks You MUST Know! We’ve called this collection of Jay-P's licks 'cutting edge' because all of them use one or more special elements or unconventional techniques such as alternative voicings of chords, modal influences, unusual use of fingers, large interval jumps, open strings, and creative use of chromatic runs.
For each of the 30 lick lessons, Jay-P will first demonstrate over a jam track and then provide a detailed breakdown of the lick emphasizing the techniques and approaches in play.
BIG BONUS! Jay-P includes two full-length solos using the lick vocabulary from the course (worth the price of admission alone!).
You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the licks for your practice, reference and study purposes. Plus, Jay-P includes all of the rhythm tracks for you to work with on your own. In addition, you’ll be able to loop or slow down any of the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace.
Grab your guitar and lets cut to the edge with Jay-P!
