So now we're
gonna play the blues.
Instead of just using our pentatonic
scale or our blues scale,
we're gonna take it to
the next intermediate level.
And make sure we're playing,
really diving into the changes more.
So if you've watched
my Improv 101 lesson and
the Improv 102 lesson and,
heads-up, in the advanced section there's
an Improv, you guessed it, 103 lesson.
Ideal with how, number one, you wanna
make sure you know the components of each
chord just like any other
song with chord changes.
You wanna know the arpeggios.
You wanna know the scales.
And within each chord you
wanna know that you focus in
on your main notes which are your arpeggio
notes and your scale tones, as well.
You can use chromaticism, whatever.
But now we're creating our linear line.
Our line that goes across the music.
So again, just as we're playing this,
make sure that, as I'm looking
at my E-flat part, my first chord is a G7,
followed by C7, followed by G7.
Chords of most blues professions
are usually pretty basically
until you get into something
a little more wild.
But so, even still, even though
the chords are relatively basic,
our music still has to be interesting.
And it still has to be
Again, you wanna think about the fact
that you wanna know the rules before
you can break them.
Breaking the rules is a whole
other subject I suppose.
We can talk about that in our forums and
our videos and things.
But hey, there is no doubt about
the fact we wanna make sure that we
learn the things we wanna work with.
So you've got your track right there so
you're welcome to play along.
I'm gonna play right now just as
an example of one thing you can do.
This track lasts for four choruses so
you got some room to breathe.
So here we go.
Here's our blues changes along
with the intermediate track.
