Welcome to Play Blues Guitar 2: Rhythm & Lead Fundamentals - the second leg of your TrueFire Learning Path journey towards becoming a solid Blues guitar player.
This Blues Learning Path core course is presented by 3 top TrueFire educators: Jeff McErlain, Corey Congilio, and Jeff Scheetz.
They’ll guide your development of the essential skills and get up and running quickly -- no reading music, no boring exercises, no tedious theory to struggle through. In fact, you’ll play your way through the entire course.
In Play Blues Guitar 1 you learned a couple of songs and licks, along with a handful of blues chords and rhythms. Here in Play Blues Guitar 2, you’re going to venture even further down the path with scales, a little soloing, more blues rhythms and more cool blues chords. For example, you’ll learn how to move up the neck playing a classic blues tune, and then tackle the two most essential blues scales of all time - the minor pentatonic, and the Blues scale -- your keys to soloing and improvising. Barre Chords open up the entire blues songbook and you’ll learn two more blues tunes using them. You’ll wrap up the course earning a 12/8 progression, featuring the bluesy 9th chord.
The educators demonstrate all of the key examples over jam tracks (where and when applicable) to simulate a real-world application, in a musical context. All of the key examples are also tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes.
You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop or slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons. Plus, you’ll have all of the available jam tracks to work with on your own.
Take as much time as you need to work through each video guitar lesson before moving on to the next lesson.
