Watch the Altered Stormy 1 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Juiced Blues
So far we've juiced a stock I-IV-V blues in G with superimposed min7b5 ideas, a minor blues set to "The Thrill is Gone" with modal maneuvers, morphed "Freddie the Freeloader" into a modern-day blues/hip-hop laced jam with lydian dominant offerings; even took something as unrelated to the blues as a symmetrical diminished scale and juiced a I-IV-V in D with dim7 arpeggios and a super-juiced quartal approach. Well, now it's time to juice the blues jam to end all blues jams--"Stormy Monday".
Also known as "Call It Stormy Monday (But Tuesday Is Just As Bad)" or just "Call It Stormy Monday", Altered Stormy borrows the changes from this iconic blues standard. Originally written and recorded by the great T-Bone Walker in 1947, this set of changes has seen its fair share of playtime and for good reason--they're completely fun to solo over as well as comp to.
Here in these final four segments everything plus the kitchen sink is coming at you so if at anytime a component within Altered Stormy seems a bit hazy, I suggest rolling back the tape to give your head and hands a little rewind.
