We are dedicated to help you learn the blues. Stop back to see our newest releases.
Over a short amount of time you'll be able to hear the chord changes. You'll quickly feel the 5 chord at the end of the 12 bar blues. That 5 chord leads to the 4 chord then the 1 chord with the turn around to start it over again!
It's can be a never ending cycle and very fun to get 'lost' in. If you've ever played in a drum circle and played a rhythm for an hour or so, it can be a similar experience. Very Cool
We also want to give you the Blues in most Keys that Bands usually play. SO BEAR WITH SOME LONG WEB PAGES ;) All instruments in with Blues in the keys of Bb, C, D, E, Eb, F, G, A
ON THE COVER TITLE It SAYS "TITLE OF BLUES SONG in XYZ" XYZ = is the KEY of the Blues
The 'Magic Notes' in every liner notes are a place to start playing the blues. Repeat the notes, creating a complimentary or contrasted rhythm and start having fun. Playing notes 'outside' the progression can sound very cool and create a lot of tension.
We are giving away our first recording for all instruments away for FREE! Tell all your band and rock friends.

Soloing is a very free, fun way to express your feelings and emotions. It is simply one of the best parts of playing your instrument. Before I give you my ideas, I want you to play around an experiment. Play with the track, then on the second chorus, play whatever you want! Play sharp notes, flat notes, listen to what sounds good or bad. Simply play around an experiment.
It would be best to improvise and experiment for a couple of days to a week!
OK, (one week later) here are some helpful hints for a more sophisticated solo.
(1) Leave Space - Don't play the whole 12 bars, give the listener a break. Try inserting rests, and playing long notes at the end of phrases. It will allow, the listener to digest your previous phrase.
(2) Repeat Notes - Take some notes and repeat them in an interesting rhythmic pattern.
Use the 'Magic Notes' in a simple repeated pattern, with slight rhythmic variations. Also notice the space left at the end of every four bars.
