Welcome to Play Blues Guitar 6: Soloing Approaches for intermediate to late Intermediate students of blues guitar.
This Blues Learning Path core course is presented by 7 top TrueFire educators: Larry Carlton, Robben Ford, Andy Timmons, Jeff McErlain, Corey Congilio, Andy Aledort, and Robert Renman.
The Soloing Approaches curriculum is comprised of select blues guitar lessons from the educators’ existing TrueFire course libraries.
Solid rhythm chops may get you the gig but it's your soloing chops that gets you the spotlight and the opportunity to electrify the audience with your musicality. Creativity, technique, and vocabulary are the essential skills you’ll need to master the art of improvisation and develop into a great soloist. The video guitar lessons in this core course will equip you with the requisite tools and guidance to take your soloing skills to the next level.
Play Blues Guitar 6: Soloing Approaches is organized into 2 sections. In the first section, you’ll work on learning new concepts like playing off of the root, and adding chromatic notes to your solos. In the second section of Performance Studies you will play your way through a mixed bag of essential blues solos.
When you’ve completed the lessons here in Soloing Approaches, you’ll find more lessons focused on soloing in Soloing Principles, also a Play Blues Guitar 6 core course.
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.
