Heart of the Blues 3
The Heart of the Blues lays a secure foundation in the pattern that you will use every time you play. All the greatest players began with this foundation pattern and the Heart of the Blues shows you how to use it to add your own personal solos to any rock, blues or jazz song. What you get: all the melody and harmony skills you need to play, compose, and improvise rock, blues and jazz. There is no need to read music--color-coded fretboard patterns, guitar tablature and traditional sheet-music in expanded instruction booklets. Just follow the instructions for jamming along with the rhythm section at 'band-practice' until satisfied with your 'take.' Our audio tracks include instructions, the 'theory' of the lick, the guitar part by itself, our official 'take,' 'guitar-only' and guitar-less rhythm tracks--jam mixes--for practicing the licks, or just for jamming fun. Chord charts and color-coded fretboard patterns show which notes to play, for easy improvisation. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Robert 'Colin' Johnson began his musical career as a teenaged rocker, then turned in his 20s to the blues, and in his 30s to jazz. With 30 years of guitar playing experience combined with street savvy gleaned from stints in both New York City and Los Angeles, Colin now makes Bluesguitarist.Org his cyber-home of jazz, rock and the blues. (Along the way Colin earned three college degrees, B.A., M.A. and M.S.). His musical scores exemplify the essence of blues, rock, and jazz, and his musical worksheets enable aspiring guitarists to progressively master the entire fretboard. Hear his songs free online at GuitarMedia.Org, where you can also jam with his free Jam-Mix rhythm tracks.
