Go beyond your usual pentatonic and blues boxes, as Denny teaches you how to use jazz inspired flavours to creatively spice up your own blues lines!
Denny says ‘Expanding The Blues is, primarily, for blues players who feel themselves locked into the pentatonic box shape and wish to incorporate some of those ‘tasty’ notes used by players like Robben Ford, Larry Carlton and Matt Schofield.’
In this masterclass, Denny will be teaching you about how targeting jazz inspired harmony over our blues backing track will add a new level of depth and development to your playing. Of course the ‘tried and tested’ pentatonic blues licks will be just as much fun as ever to play over this backing, but Denny will also be showing you how he uses chromatic passing tones, targeting chord notes and other melodic devices to take things a step further and intensify the captivating flavours of the blues!
Using the masterclass PDF as the core guide, Denny takes you through 22 exercises designed to build the fundamentals in your playing by using phrases inspired by classic jazz and blues vocabulary used since the 1920’s! In these, you’ll focus on the phrasing of the notes and simple/subtle techniques that most players overlook!
Next up comes a whopping 53 licks! Focusing on 3 different shuffle sections of the 12 bar blues, Denny takes you through an exploration of extended harmony ideas, all written to help you augment and build your pentatonic playing into something even more refined and mature!
Last up, you’ll be learning 3 of Denny's full solos. As well as working through all of the devices and techniques included in the masterclass, studying these will also give you a treasure chest of new lick ideas and developments! These ‘real world’ solos are your chance to study from a professional blues guitarist and absorb everything you need to learn to play like the greats yourself!
So if your blues playing is starting to sound a little stale and in need of a re-vamp, or if you’ve always wondered how the blues professionals sound so elegant and sophisticated, then this is the masterclass you need to learn from!
