Tired of the same cliche blues licks? Feeling stuck in that old pentatonic box? Need some fresh new chord voicings for your blues progressions? Want your solos to actually reflect the sound of the chord changes? In this 4-week course, we will explore ways to make the sound of the blues changes come out in your playing. We will look at voice-leading through blues progressions, methods for outlining chord changes in your single note lines, more organic soloing, enhancing your vocabulary with jazz-influenced sounds, chord substitutions, modes, and more! We will examine how blues players like B.B. King, Albert King, Robben Ford, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, approach making the changes when improvising over a blues progression. The course includes handouts, and opportunities for Q&A and live feedback!

Jamey is a great teacher and is very personable. He manages to move at a pace that, at least to me, balances between those in the class familiar with basic concepts in music theory and those (like me) with a more modest understanding, which is to say, I need to pay attention and revisit the recorded classes, but Jamey challenges me just enough to keep me interested and engaged, never frustrated. I have learned a lot already and love the new material I have to work with.
Jamey does a great job in prep, reads the room well in these virtual settings to gauge what is resonating with the group, and teaches by example. I find the sessions to be an effective blend of fundamentals along with applied creativity. I'm really glad I signed up, and plan to continue.
Jeremy is amazingly knowledgeable about the guitar and always explains things very thoroughly.
He is the Guitar Master! Good info in the class with handouts and links. Great demonstrations and answers everyones questions. Quick email responses.

I think Jamie’s teaching is clear and easy to follow. I think we cover a bit too much too fast and I can’t keep up. But, I am definitely learning some great material.
