Bluesology thoroughly examines the theory and harmony behind performing, composing and improvising the blues. Rhythmic patterns, progressions, solo development and essential techniques for electric blues guitar are covered extensively across 80 full-length interactive video lessons in both Bluesology Volume 1 and 2 (160 video lessons total).
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.
