Watch the Solo Revolution: Diminished Lines online guitar lesson by Robben Ford from Solo Revolution: Diminished Lines
Hi, I'm Robben Ford, and welcome to this Diminished Lines edition of Solo Revolution. The diminished scale, for me, has always had a direct correlation to the blues. It's both major and minor, which is very characteristic of the blues. The use of the flatted fifth and the emotional intensity of the diminished scale sounds like the blues to me.
I've prepared 8 soloing performance studies to illustrate how I use diminished lines in the blues. In this course, we'll also discuss the techniques and creative approaches that I use in my improvisations. Everything is tabbed and notated, plus you'll get the rhythm tracks to work with on your own. Chord charts showing most of the voicings that I use are also included. Grab your guitar and let's dig in!
