Watch the Motivic Development online guitar lesson by Robben Ford from Blues Motif Revolution

In this lesson we'll work with a 12-bar blues track that has a funky feel and a lot of room to move around. I'll start with a classic blues motif and bring in a little funky rhythm. It's important to keep the rhythm guitar in conversation with the other instruments, building the motif with them, developing it more and playing higher on the neck. By "talking" to the other instruments you can establish some ground for the soloist so they'll know what's coming next.
