“Just wanted to drop you guys an email about the course today. It was awesome and I was really impressed,  nice pace and excellent explanation of the theory side. I’ve had lessons years ago and can honestly say that its never been explained like that before, it’s really stuck in my head which is amazing, my only gripe is when’s the next course?!” Martin

Unlock the mysteries of blues soloing on this course. Gain some of the tools needed to help you to improvise parts and solos, help select sounds and techniques to really set the world on fire with your licks!

Many musicians get stuck in a routine and play the same patterns, chords and scales that they are familiar with or even a few choice notes that they know will sound correct.  The aim of the blues soloing course is to open up your musical knowledge and enable you to visualise and use alternative patterns and scales to really help you become a confident and expressive soloist.

There are many facets to blues soloing that go beyond simply playing the ‘right’ notes.  Learning to play with ‘feel’ and expression, leaving space and even using different playing techniques to emphasise the musical message you are trying to convey. The solo is the chance for the musician to shine and show off how comfortable they are with their chosen instrument.  If we want to express an emotion or feeling to another person, we have a large enough vocabulary and a skillful enough command of language to simply state how we are feeling without needing to think about verbs, nouns or adjectives.  How great would it be to have the same command of music and to be able to play exactly what we hear in our heads without thinking about scales or chords?The blues soloing course will arm you with lots of skills, tips and tricks to take your soloing to the next level as well as giving you the confidence to step up to the front of the stage and really let your playing shine.

After just a couple of sessions your playing will develop from ‘syllabic’ playing to using interesting phrasing, hooks and motifs.
