Welcome to Beginner Lead Blues Guitar Lessons! As a blues guitarist for over 20 years and instructor for nearly as long, the one thing I hear from aspiring players most often is…”I know my scales and technique but, how do I put it all together?!” I also encounter many players that understand improvising over the 12 Bar Blues form but, only know a few Minor Pentatonic scales. To make things worse, no one ever taught them how to effectively develop techniques like bending, hammer-ons, pull-offs, vibrato and more. These techniques combined with scale playing is a HUGE part of the improvising process. However, having a guide to show you how to put it all together really makes the difference. That’s why I created Beginner Blues Lead Guitar!
In Beginner Blues Lead Guitar you can be just that…a beginner! There’s no reason to be intimidated here as I will take you from the ground level of playing lead guitar to competently creating your own blues solos. What’s the ground level you might ask? Well, I’ll not only teach you the nuts and bolts of scales and technique, I’ll teach you the how and why too! Some beginners may not even know what “improvising” or playing “lead” guitar is. Not to worry! I’ll give full background on what improvising on guitar is and how you can do it on your own!
I’ll teach you over 25 Blues Solos in 4 different keys. The beauty of these solos is that they focus on each scale pattern and are at slow tempos so that you can build confidence while traversing through each one!
I will also spend a lot of time on technique. Hammer-ons, Pull-offs, sliding, bending, vibrato, and double stops are all covered. I even constructed solos around each one of these techniques so that they work perfectly in the Minor Pentatonic scale patterns.
Beginning Blues guitarists are always on the hunt for great tone and I’ve added an extensive Gear section at the end of the course to give you pointers on how to craft the Blues Lead tone you’re after. I’ll show you several guitars, pedals and amp settings to help aid you in tonequest!
Of course all assets like TABs, PDFs, and Backing tracks are included and, you can comment and ask questions in the Udemy interface as well.
