John F Klaver

Minor Blues Essentials Masterclass


John F. Klaver returns with a masterclass that will help you tackle minor blues soloing. Filled with creative concepts, instantly applicable ideas and plenty of solos to learn, John has included everything you'll need to step up your blues game and take your soloing to the next level!

In this masterclass John has four sections for you to master. First up comes the PDF explanation on what is happening in this minor blues backing and what your options are when soloing over the top of it!

Next, he moves you on with 10 '12-bar solos' designed to give you plenty of lick ideas that you can use in your own solos. Each solo comes with an explanation to help you understand and internalise the various different concepts John feels you will need to learn to progress. In this section you'll be working on a wealth of technical and melodic techniques that will help you develop your soloing including; minor pentatonic, blues, dorian, lydian dominant and super locrian scales, double stops, bends, pull offs, super-imposing arpeggios, tension and resolution, plus plenty of other blues and jazz-blues influenced ideas!

After the shorter solos comes the extended solo! This full solo is a great example of how all of the various concepts you've learned up to this point can work in the context of a real solo. John focuses more on creating solid musical and melodic ideas in this solo, utilising dynamics and expression effectively to give the solo more impact! Of course we've got it all tabbed out too so you can learn every note.

Lastly, you'll have 10 technical exercises designed specifically to help you practise and perfect the material in this masterclass. You'll be working on everything from arpeggios (and their extensions) in different positions, to connecting scale shapes, patterns, following changes, targeting chord tones and more!

So if you're looking to finally take your blues playing up a notch, grab John's Minor Blues Essentials Masterclass today!

As ever, we have included everything you need to practise and perfect the material in this package. There are video and audio tracks for you to watch/listen and study, accurately transcribed TAB/notation for you to analyse and master, and backing tracks for everything! We've even included some text notes to help you really get these parts down!
