You explained the concepts clearly, and have given me something musical to practice other than just 'running scales'. Now I know the principles, I can apply these ideas to other musical situations with confidence. Thanks again!

Here's Why I created my Solo Blues Jamming workshop...
People often say:
'I can play blues chords, licks and solos. Why can't I mix them all together to create a 'solo' blues jam like some players do?'
I started thinking about what was stopping them from being able to do this. Then I decided to create a step-by-step method to teach them how to overcome these problems.
The result is my Solo Blues Jamming workshop.
This course works because it focuses on the basics, giving you the solid foundation you need to get your jams sounding great. Once you've got that foundation, you'll be amazed what it allows you to do.
This workshop does not give you all sorts of 'hot licks and tricks' which you'll never use. Instead, we focus on things like keeping a rock-solid rhythm, keeping your place in the blues, integrating licks in between chords without getting lost... all the things which stop most players in their tracks when it comes to playing in this style.
After that, we'll add finishing touches like intros and turnarounds to turn your solo jams into polished sounding performances!
So if you want to play blues solo-jams but have found it impossible before now, grab this inexpensive workshop, and we'll get started right away...

In this course you'll learn a '3-step-plan' to use to develop the skills you need to enjoy many hours of happy solo jamming - without the confusion and frustration most players encounter.
Step 1: Nail the Basic Skill
Start by learning to jam on a one chord riff. Discover how to get 100% comfortable 'juggling' chords and licks together and how to keep the rhythmic groove rock-solid (this is 'make-or-break' for your jams!)
Step 2: Solo Jam the 12 Bar-Blues
Next, you'll apply what you learned in Step 1 to a complete 12 bar blues progression. Discover how to switch between playing licks and chords without losing your place in the blues - an essential skill for taking your blues jams wherever you want (without ever worrying about getting lost)
Step 3: Creating a Finished Performance
Finally you'll discover how to add intro licks, turnarounds and blues endings for a slicker, more polished performance. You'll learn some common intro and turnaround licks, plus how to use basic hybrid picking technique to achieve some absolutely classic blues sounds.
