Not really for beginners, please read the description, but everyone can benefit from the first ten seconds!

It's about how to tweak the blues scale to adjust to the chord changes, and while the terminology may be advanced, the sounds are not.

Enjoy!

20 min long but worth it!

Thanks Ty.

It's a bit above my pay grade right now, but it's exactly where I want to be learning. Just need to work my way up the learning curve. ;)

Just to prove I watched the whole thing: saw the backdrop malfunction and heard your example of the tritone theory at the end.

Nice little lesson. A lot covered.

Did you record this on your cell?

On my cell? Wow, I guess youtube compressed it like crazy, it's actually shot in HD on my Zoom cam like the other ones. Only the BB King minor blues lesson was done on my iPad, the rest on the Q2HD. I usually do a picture enhancement in iMovie, but the last two I've forgotten that step.

I just looked at it, it doesn't look bad, and even on youtube the detail is pretty clear. Hmmm.

It looks okay in regular mode but full screen mode it looks a little fuzzy, at least on my computer.

I'm not knockin' it. Camera's on phones do pretty amazing stuff nowadays.

I am not sure about the camera, but there is very little feeling.

Saturn, I don't know what to tell you, other than not everyone reaches everyone. I can think of a few very noted guitarists that don't reach me either.

Feeling is my strong suit, and it gets me hired and rehired, but again, one cannot please everyone. But being in the customer service bidness, I'll attempt to try in your case.

Solo starts at 3:56

First I've heard of "feeling" requested in a lesson video.

"First I've heard of "feeling" requested in a lesson video."

I agree, this is about technique and practical application ... not heart felt performance.

Or so it seems to me.

I'll still defend the work. Staying in a restricted area is a challenge, because I normally draw on more than just what's in this lesson. But I wanted to demonstrate that you can get plenty busy with just what's in here. I did use a stray A note (and mentioned it) because it's very difficult to stay within a particular realm once you have more material available.

But given the completely clean tone, and the looped backing track, I thought the playing was appropriate, and musical, IMO. If I heard someone else play the same thing, I'd be OK with it. I can find a sharp bend, and 1 or 2 very minor timing things, but overall it's musical, and it flows.

Thanks Tyrone, Always appreciate you taking the time to show us new things we can use to further our playing.

Without hearing you say it, I was too obtuse to pick up on that, sorry to say.

OK Irony 101.

For the primary purpose of relaying sound, the image quality was of secondary importance. Style over substance like One Direction.

Fantastic, Warren! Now learn it in all 5 areas really really well. Because while there is a wealth of information here and things to do, it is not the end, but the beginning of really starting to solo over chord changes. But you can get plenty busy with just this material, so learn it well, and it'll serve you well. I still use these techniques even though I have a lot more in the bag.

I listened to the whole tune 'I would rather go blind' not once but twice the first time I heard it!
That is some of the best playing I've heard in years! Your tones/note choice/and phrasing really impressed me. Thank You!

Thanks for the lesson too!
