One of the most challenging skills for blues players is soloing over a slow blues. Not only do you need the technical chops and a solid understanding of the underlying harmony, you also need to be able to tell a story with expressive phrasing, dynamics, and emotion.
Ready to get your own your slow blues chops up to speed? Play your way through the 10 performance studies in Corey Congilio’s Slow Blues Guru and you’ll be well on your way to guru status yourself.
”Legendary guitarists like Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Mike Bloomfield, Jimi Hendrix and Gary Moore are all gurus of slow blues. In this Slow Blues Guru course, I’ll guide you through 10 performance studies designed to help you develop the skills you’ll need to become a guru of the slow blues as well.”
Corey organized the course into 10 Slow Blues performance studies. Each study focuses on a specific slow blues approach. Corey will first perform the solo and then break it down note-for-note explaining the underlying technical and harmonic approaches.
You’ll work on slow Texas Blues-style solos with tons bends and vibrato, slow blues solos that combine major and minor pentatonic sounds with double stops, slow down-home blues with lots of open string playing, and slow blues solos taking maximum advantage of the sixth interval.
You’ll learn how to artfully outline chord changes, play in 12/8, 6/8, as well as 4/4, tackle a signature jazz standard progression with a gritty soulful approach, and how to solo over a laid back R&B ballad. And finally you’ll pull out all the stops and play a hard rock inspired solo full of aggressive lines and phrases.
