Blues in G major: Etude #1
This etude focuses on developing melodic ideas within a 12-bar traditional blues, using the major blues scale of each chord
(aka using a g major blues scale over a G7 chord, c major blues scale over a C7, etc.) Starting with a simple three-note idea
means lots of room for developing that idea over the course of the solo. Remember that repition is a good thing when improvising!
Repitition helps maintain the cohesiveness of your solo and keeps the listener's attention. Once you've learned this etude, practice
the major blues scales listed below, pick a three-note pattern and try writing and/or improvising your own solo!
