Watch the Slow Blues Sampler online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Slow Blues Power
Welcome to my latest instructional course, Slow Blues Power: Mastering Slow Blues Soloing and Improvisation. Over the course of these lessons I’ll be covering a variety of soloing styles and techniques within the context of eight different key centers, presented within a variety of different feels, grooves and forms, from standard 12-bar blues forms to the more unusual eight-bar blues forms. Also, I’ll be covering the standard I-IV-V (one-four-five) type of blues progression as well as I-VI-II-V (one-six-two-five) progressions, and some other progressions as well.
Each of the following soloing examples address a wide spectrum of both right-and-left-hand articulation techniques, phrasing concepts and stylistic signatures that are found in the playing of all of the true blues guitar masters, such as Albert King, B.B. King, T-Bone Walker, Buddy Guy, and Freddie King, to the blues/rock virtuosos like Jimi Hendrix, Duane Allman, Johnny Winter, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and many others.
