LESSON ONE: KING OF MODERN BLUES: B.B.KING, ALBERT KING, FREDDIE KING and T.BONE WALKER - By analyzing sample tunes, Fred teaches how to play electric single-string blues licks. You will learn several scale positions and how to improvise with them, how to do the "blues vibrato", and how to use fill-in licks, chords and turnarounds. LESSON TWO: MODERN ROCK: ENGLISH BLUES and HEAVY METAL - This lesson concentrates on the licks, scales and playing styles of Eric Clapton, Van Halen, Ted Nugent and Jimmy Page - guitarists whose playing directly derives from the blues masters. This lesson includes instruction in effects (distortion, vibrato bar, etc.), blues and sliding scales. LESSON THREE: JAZZY ELECTRIC BLUES - Our last lesson in the series illustrates how to jazz up the 12-bar blues progression, how to vary the blues scales with diminished scales a la Charlie Christian, how to apply blues scales to jazz tunes, how to "substitute scales", and the special techniques used by Wes Montgomery and George Benson.
