Special blues Chords/Sliding 9ths/Horn Lines on the Guitar -
Well, for lack of a better name (to be perfectly candid about it), I came up with the label "special blues chords" many years ago...and yes! These chord forms are special in a few different ways. However, before we dive in, remember that this lesson is much more about "feel" and the way you express yourself using these forms. It's much more about being rhythmic, using technique and dynamics rather than being analytical. In other words, it's not about music theory at all really. Rather, it's about the "groove" and texture. The focus of this lesson is to use these forms in different combinations, and sequences.
