Break out of your blues rut and think beyond the box! If your blues solos are stuck in the box, literally and figuratively, this book/CD pack will take your soloing to a fresh, new place. Buzz Feiten teaches you how to break beyond the tried-and-true and stretch the familiar by crafting blues solos with an emphasis on variations in harmony, rhythm, melody, tone, and dynamics. The blues solo is approached like a story, with a beginning, a development, and an end, with instruction on how to build each section. The CD includes recorded demonstrations by Buzz Feiten of every example, plus slowed-down versions of each solo and five jam tracks.
