Do you want to sharpen up your improvisational technique?
Jazzin' The Blues features renowned blues guitarist Bill Boazman (a.k.a. Sonny Black) and his band demonstrating a variety of jazz-blues songs and showing you how to play them. Now you can enjoy jamming with a full live band whilst sharpening your blues chops. This DVD is intended for the blues player that wishes to extend their vocabulary to take in the jazzier sounds in the blues. It covers tuning, passing chords, lead runs and scales, with full up-close demonstrations, as well as 7 full length backing tracks that allow you to practice with a full band.
Furthermore, two accompanying audio CDs feature 12 original songs in the styles of T-Bone Walker, Wes Montgomery, Ronnie Earl and Magic Sam amongst others. Each song is indexed as two tracks: one full demonstration recording with the guitar solo, followed by the backing track that allows you to sit in and take over the solos yourself.
Jazzin' The Blues is a fantastic look and learn method, a useful practice tool and a great way to unwind, just playing along with your own world class band!
A useful learning tool for anyone interested in exploring the jazzier side of blues. The audio quality and level of musicianship on display is outstanding.
