As anyone who squeaked through 10th grade history knows, the alchemists were a semi-scientific posse of medieval individuals utterly hung up on the notion of transforming lead into gold.
Of course, their efforts did not lead to economic good times, but Blues Alchemy addresses a much more useful and likely kind of transformation: turning those leaden, everyday blues licks and chord progressions into tasty and intriguing improvisational gold.
Blues Alchemy is about learning to play the changes, but not in the sense that jazz musicians do – it isn't about learning every arpeggio and mode under the sun. Instead, on ten diverse chord progressions, master blues alchemist David Hamburger will teach you how to transform your blues bag into gold by learning how to target tones and "play the changes." This series of video guitar lessons will have a dramatic impact on your blues guitar solos as you learn how to apply these principles.
Adopting a hands-on playing approach, Hamburger guides you through 10 distinct blues guitar rhythm pattern lessons with variations, 10 distinct solo lessons with variations, plus dozens of extra blues licks and tricks of the trade.
