Teaching the Blues Scale & Improvisation – A Video from Neil Moore

Found in: Neil Moore

Were you ever wowed by the wizardry of a blues musician? Really, anyone can achieve an authentic blues sound with a few basic tools. Using some very simple tools Blues can be taught to entry-level students with great success. One of these tools, the principle of ‘mapping’, is also a crucial key you can use as you progress into more advanced projects. Oh, and improvising with blues is something you can begin right away.
