Blues You Can Use Lesson 2 & 3
« on: April 26, 2018, 08:06:31 pm »
First one is Blues Rock Tune. Similar to Texas Rock but uses barre chords and A pentatonic 1 from 5th fret.

Lesson 3 is called True Blue.
Rhythm chords are regular A7 and D7 barre chords but E7 is movable C7 shape which was more difficult to change to than I thought it would be.
Lead is a bit repetative but a good start for learning bends. Still playing before the beat but not as much as before.

Any tips and advice are welcome :)

Matek, yes, sir!!!  What a jump!!  Both sounding good but No. 2 sounded like you were a little more
in the pocket and just grooving along.   Advice:  Keep doing what you're doing and going in the direction you're going.  Nice job!

Good work, Matek.  I enjoyed both, sounded in good time, clean and smooth playing.  Above my play-grade to offer tips and advice.  Keep at it and continue to share ... it inspires me to keep working towards being able to do the same.

You’re definitely improving, both sounded pretty much ok to me!
One little bit of advice, get some practice in on vibrato try to get it a bit wider.

Thanks Oldhead.
I noticed that also. Probably because the first one mixes rhythm and lead while the second one is separate so you can get a better groove going.

Enjoyed that Matek. Played with good feeling. Well done!

Thanks Loefgren.

I must admit I feel a bit left out :)
I was hoping you would put your sound engineers cap on and give me some tips about levels and mixing

The recordings with the book didn't have vibrato but on some of the longer notes I just couldn't help giving it a bit of a wiggle.
I just flicked through the book and couldn't find any lessons on vibrato which is a bit of a worry for a blues book.
I'll check Justins vibrato lesson again and add where I feel it fits.
Thanks Darrell.

Thanks!!
And I look forward to improving in the things you do better in your recordings.

Sorry about that, Matek, would never do such a thing  ;D  I could hear the solos fine over the backing, which meant job done  ;)

Take a look at this, it’s one of the best Solos to look at for bending and vibrato technique, also one of my all time favourite blues solos!

You should be able to have a go at it, it’s not technically too demanding so a really good one to get under the belt mainly for technique.

Hi,
First one - Like it, sounds good to my ears. Really like you got a drum track and more going on in the mix!

2nd one or True Blue BYCU - Like this too but it the tempo to me seems to drag on just a bit. Pretty good on the bend but you can improve I think. You have a good feel for this.

Nice tones on both for sure...

Keep up the rocking blues vibe!

I think you're in the groove on both of these, good vibes.
