Watch the Super Dom Blues 1 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Juiced Blues

Kicking things off is a set of lessons called Super Dom Blues--short for Superimposed Dominant Blues. While the concept of superimposition will be discussed several times throughout Juiced Blues, put simply its playing a secondary element over a primary element. In regards to Super Dom Blues, you're going to learn how to play secondary melodic ideas over primary harmony by playing superimposed m7b5 arpeggios and a lone minor pentatonic scale over a textbook I-IV-V in G. Playing these arps over the changes will bring out tones such as the 3rd, b7th and 9th contained within interval and line sequences that will be new to your ear. As for the minor pentatonic scale, you'll hear b7th, 9th, and 11th tones over the V chord. This approach will produce a more sophisticated sound in your lines and will sound very cool when pitted against those gritty sounding minor pentatonic and minor blues licks we all know and love (albeit play to death).
