Watch the Twisted Guitar: Blues Soloing online guitar lesson by Oz Noy from Twisted Guitar: Blues Soloing
Hi, I'm Oz Noy. Welcome to Twisted Guitar: Blues Soloing.
Blues, jazz, and funk solos are usually improvised. Top players almost never play the same exact solo over a particular tune or groove. However, they might tap their own vocabulary of licks and use those licks in their improvised solos. Sometimes, they'll even build their solos around those licks. I'll show you how to do that in this course.
We'll be working with 10 blues backing tracks and I'll improvise 2 solos for each of the tracks - 20 solos in total! The first solo will always include a few handpicked licks from my own vocabulary, and I'll intentionally build my solo around those licks. I'll also teach you those licks, note-for note - 30 licks in total!
The second solo will also be improvised, but I will not build the solo around any particular licks. I'll let you pick out your own favorites and then learn them from the included tab and notation.
Of course, all of the solos and licks include some of my "twisted" harmonic approaches. We'll work with a variety of tempos, keys and feels. Along with each of the licks and solo performances, you'll get standard notation, tab, and all the backing tracks to work with on your own. You can also loop or slow down any of the performances so you can work with them at your own pace.
Grab your guitar, and let's get started!
