Introducing the Blues Workshop!
A 6-week workshop series out of berkeley.
Learn to incorporate the nuances of the masters into your playing – from doubling the bass over a shuffle in the style of Buddy Guy, to combining major and minor pentatonic scales in the style of B.B. King and T-Bone Walker. Learn new ways to pace your solos to create tension and release. You’ll learn to reuse the concepts and musical elements to expand your musical foundation and enhance your ability, whether you’re trying to bring a blues sound to your playing or add more depth and feel to any other style.
Each week, we’ll break down an artist, looking at a few of their songs and solos in a short workshop. Afterwards there is an open jam, where we can work on applying those concepts in real situations. Every other week there will be a guest host, who will offer their perspective, and stick around for the jam portion.
