Who is This Courses For?

This course is designed for guitarists looking to expand your blues beyond the basics and integrate jazz concepts into your blues solos.

It’s for guitarist’s who:

  • Have explored blues scales and are ready for the next step.
  • Love Robben Ford, Larry Carlton, and others but don’t know what they’re playing.
  • Have tried other blues courses but weren’t satisfied with your progress.
  • Are ready for a challenge in your blues guitar studies.
  • Want to try out a FREE course to see what the hubbub is all about.


I’ve been playing blues and jazz blues for over 25 years and have jammed on the blues with musicians all over the world.

I want to share with you everything I’ve learned about how to reach the next level in your blues playing and inject some jazz into your blues solos.

 

When I was first learning guitar I went all in on the blues, I loved blues guitar and spent hours a day exploring soloing and chord concepts.

I learned full blues solos by ear, I stole every chord shape from my favorite players I could, and when I was ready, I jumped on stage at jam sessions and loved it.

At the time I was cruisin’ with the blues, everything was clicking, and I was turning heads on stage at jams and gigs.

But.

Then something funny happened, I heard Robben Ford and he stopped me in my tracks.

He was playing blues, but it was different.

The blues scale was there, and those chords I knew, and there was a whole bunch of other stuff that I didn’t recognize.

It was that “other” material beyond the blues scale and basic chord shapes that blew me away, and I knew I had to learn how to play in that style no matter what.

So, I put my head down, transcribed a ton of lines and solo, learned new chords, and went all in to expand my blues playing.

The lessons I learned during this stage in my musical development skyrocketed my playing, opened new doors in my career, and set the stage for me to head into jazz guitar later on.

It is these essential concepts and skills that are at the core of this FREE blues guitar course.

These 5 must-know lessons will transform your blues playing, open your ears to new sounds, and help you expand beyond box patterns in your playing.

Oh, and these exercises are also a blast to work on I the practice room.

Can’t go wrong there.

The next step in your blues guitar journey is in front of you, let’s work together to help you become the best blues guitarist you can be.
