Watch the Study 2: Tulsa Blues online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Focus On: Western Swing
In this study we're going to take a look a western swing blues. Remember we will not be using the blues scale. You don't need a blues scale to play the blues. We don't want to put to much movement in the changes. The rhythm part is simple. I'm avoiding inversions and substitution. As soloist we'll want to incorporate the swinging major pentatonic, second scale degree bends and outlining chords.
