I’m just about done with the first instructional video, tentatively titled “Beyond the Box”. The lesson offers several ways to break out of pentatonic scale ruts and help dress up those tired old blues licks. I'm still editing the final video, but here’s a little appetizer:
Along with the instructional video there will also be a PDF that boils down all of the concepts and licks into a handy-dandy reference. There will also be four MP3 jam-tracks that go with the lesson to give students something to explore these concepts with. The video for “Ed’s Boogie” is one example of soloing over one of those backing tracks. The video contains a “play-by-play” breakdown of what I’m doing as I’m playing.
I’m really pleased with how this video turned out and I can’t wait to finish off the first lesson. Stay tuned!
