Blues Soloing Masterclass: Intermediate


This brand new JTC masterclass will take you through from the Blues basics to the soloing confidence of the stars! Crammed full of lessons, exercises, licks and solos, this full course has been designed step-by-step to take your Blues soloing to the next level!

We're tackling a BIG subject this time. Blues is like a coal seam running through the rock of so much music. Even if you don't play blues, you might play music that exists because of blues... jazz, classic rock, soul, funk? So with that in mind, Blues is undeniably a cornerstone of modern music that will benefit your playing greatly if you develop it's skills and techniques! This series is a full course covering Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels so no matter what level you are currently at you can use this to push your Blues playing to new levels, fill in the gaps in your knowledge or if you're advanced enough even brush up on your old skills to dust off those Blues chops!

This intermediate volume takes things up a level and covers 'standard blues' (using dominant chords), targeting chord tones, microtone bends, exploiting the major/minor ambiguity and relies more on a bluesy phrasing style. You'll also encounter a few more complicated ideas in the licks such as adding in chromatics, lydian dominant scales, super locrian scales and even some half/whole diminished ideas! You'll find exercises designed to drill home the main ideas and engrain them deeply in your playing so that they're there when you need them most and licks to give you fresh ideas and inspiration on how to use these concepts musically. Finally, we have not one, but two full solos! One covers a longer exploration of the concepts covered in the licks and the second takes a more full on approach to attitude and phrasing.

Overall, throughout the full three part course we will be covering a lot of ground! If you can work your way though all three volumes, internalising and absorbing each concept as you learn it, you'll be well on your way to becoming a master of the Blues and soloing with the creative freedom you've always aspired for!

As ever, we have included everything you need to practise and perfect the material in this package, the core of which will be the main masterclass PDF document. There are also 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!
