This is a new way into BLUES!

Part 1.

HEADS

There are various heads (tunes) in blues and jazz where one riff is repeated three times to make the ‘head’, or in other words, the tune.

In this course you learn three of these, and I think they are easy, fun, and extremely useful.

When you know some of these heads you will be able to play a harmonica instrumental which makes you the soloist and the star of the band. Not bad.

Great for confidence, independence, and musicianship.

Part 2.

BASS LINES

In the second part of the course we will take a fresh look at learning to play some bass lines.

You will learn a bunch of classic bass lines and this will act as a massive structural support for your playing.

These famous bass lines work with the chords and rhythm plus they have their own melody.

This is a really good way to support your solos and your improvising.

Once you can feel the structure of the piece you can start to relax and improvise freely without any stress!

Note - I'm describing this as 'all levels' because everyone will get something from this. Much of the course will be fine for beginners but you will be challenged as you go on. If you can't bend yet just play everything without bending. Then study bending and circle round to do this again. The last two lectures (boogiewoogie) will challenge everyone so just a heads up.
