Scott A. Smith teaches you all the essential blues phrasing techniques and tricks. Learn simple concepts like solo construction, phrasing over a 12-bar blues, the blues scale, pentatonic box patterns, and playing multiple scales over a single chord. Also, learn practical, effective techniques like trills, slides, and rakes. In-depth lessons on bending teach you how to use target notes, initial and destination notes, pre-bends, and how to combine bends with box patterns. The included DVD is hosted by Smith and features live demonstrations of the examples in the book.
