Advanced Blues in Six Weeks is the next step from the already classic Electric Blues In Six Weeks. This series goes deep into the possibilities of blues soloing, analysing the true diversity between between some of the best blues guitar players who have explored the genre. From the string bending and jazz concepts of BB King to the amazing fast blues rock runs of Joe Bonamassa. Concepts such as diminished scale usage made popular by Robben Ford are demonstrated and taught for practical application.
Week Two includes ideas that are a step away from traditional blues. An A minor backing track using some 'jazz' chord changes is used to demonstrate the use of jazz licks within the blues. Robben Ford style ideas using altered, chromatic and lydian b7 scales are looked at and many exciting licks are drawn from these scales. Phrasing and dynamics are a major part of this DVD providing some new and exciting vocabulary for any one new to this style.
Artists such as Larry Carlton also bring a jazz flavour to the blues and popular ideas such as playing off of the "five chord" are discussed and utilized. For anyone trying to take their playing to the next level, Advanced blues in six week will give you plenty of new ideas, licks and inspiration to help you take a further step into better understanding and playing of blues guitar.
