A - 8 Bar Blues


To continue evolving our playing the blues we are going to use some of these new chords we have learned for an 8 bar blues progression.  Make sure you are comfortable with all the new chords


I am and have been predominantly focusing on the chords and chord progressions, as there is not much point in focusing on soloing if you cant play the chord progression too


Shortly we will start looking at developing the ability to play lead, solos on all of the chord progressions covered so far and more


Establishing a good solid foundation is essential,  Remember always revise and practise all we have done so far and the scales we have done too

M2 - Project  3b

Chord Progression 2 - A 12 Bar Blues  Each bar has 4 beats Study the video and copy

C - Substitute chords


Basically we are using the minor 6 chords as substitute chords to add more colour to the progression


Again make sure you master these chord progressions and revise everything else


By Mastering Modules 1 and 2 you will have laid down a very good foundation for yourself, then we can look at being able to solo over all chord progressions
