Watch the Modified Eight online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Lab: Blues Soloing
Continuing our look into soloing over eight bar blues we rock a set called Modified Eight. As the name implies the changes you'll be playing over are enhanced versions of what was seen in the previous Basic Eight progressions. Notable additives are the #ivdim7 chord in the second half of bar 2 at beat 3, the VI7 chord in bar 4 and the ii-V that resides in bars 5 and 6 respectively. All these new changes make for some very interesting soloing options and will be a cool pre-cursor to a set of changes to come later in the course.
