Watch the Dynamics online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Blues Guitar Survival Guide - Lead
Dynamics in music is everything to me and it is certainly extremely prevalent in the blues. Think about all those great rises and falls in a great performance, it's what keeps the music living. There is nothing cooler than when Albert Collins brings down the band to a whisper level and slowly brings it up to a roar. Like everything we need to practice this! Once again it's about control over the instrument. A great way to practice this is to play as loudly as you can and then as softly as you can. Work everywhere in between. Go to the extremes, by doing this we learn what that both feels and sounds like.
