So what we're gonna do now is I'm gonna do
a little bit of demonstrating about how we
might use
all these different blues techniques to
play and
maybe improvise over a 12 bar blues.
Now the point of this isn't to play, to
learn to play exactly what I'm playing.
What I'm going to try and do here is just
show you the, sort of, emotive and
hopefully, creative element of how you can
use the techniques we've already learned
to create your own riffs and your own sort
of, melodies over a blues progression.
So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna play
over the blues progression.
I'm just gonna improvise, and we can get a
feel of how you might connect some
of these different licks and you'll just
get a feel for how the blues can sound.
So let's give it a try.
We'll get a, a backing track going and
we'll play over the 12 bar blues.
