Video guitar lessons Online

With online guitar lessons there are several advantages. You can have thousands of lessons ready at anytime. You don't have to sift through endless disks, books and tapes. You can go at your own pace and focus on the thing you need to learn. Some guitar sites even guide you through the process and show you what to learn next!

The lesson below is great for blues improvising. We are going to go over different scales you can actually interchange as you play over the blues changes. Now sit back and enjoy!

Instead of being stuck with one guitar teacher, you can have access to many, many teachers at once. My recommendation is to learn at least one piece in all of the major musical styles. Learn something in Rock, Blues, Jazz, Reggae, funk, country, etc. Definitely learn to read music and music theory as well. 

While you are here check out the lessons on my site. Thanks, Kevin

Blues - Advanced Improvisation Concepts
by Hanspeter Kruesi of GuitarTricks.com










Instructor: Hanspeter Kruesi
Speciality: Blues, Jazz and Touch Technique
Website: GuitarTricks.com

This is a lesson about advanced improvisation concepts on blues. It shows how you can play 3 different scales on any 12 bar or other blues.

The blues pattern I use here has the following chord progression:

D / D / D / D
G / G / D / D
A / G / D / D

The scales which can be used are:

D minor pentatonic
D blues scale
D, G and A mixolydian scale.

You can play the following scales on the following chords :

D : D minor pentatonic, D blues scale, D mixolydian scale
G : D minor pentatonic, D blues scale, G mixolydian scale
A : D minor pentatonic, D blues scale, A mixolydian scale

On the Guitar Tricks site I have a whole bundle of licks which might give you some additional inspiration. Each lick is marked as pentatonic or mixolydian lick in the description. When you transpose a pentatonic lick you have to transpose it to the key of the blues you are playing. When you transpose a mixolydian lick you have to transpose it to the chord you want to improvise.
