Watch the Chromatic Blues online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 7: Style Diversity
Chromatic Blues - Breakdown is a video guitar lesson presented by Frank Vignola and is sourced from Essentials: Chord Melody Etudes.
Here we have a 12 bar blues progression in the key of C. The melody is based on the chromatic scale and how to use the chromatic scale to move through the different chords of the blues. We will basically use all the techniques we have gone over and include them in this cool etude. Practice slowly, concentrate on a few measures at a time and playing rubato are great practice techniques. Since this piece is so dense we look at how to play less and make it work.
