With help from our very own "MGN", myguitarnow, I started a learn to play blues page that will hopefully develop into a large jamming page with lot's of exercises and playback accompaniments. This is only the beginning dancing

Special thanks to MGN for his fantastic help!!! doublekiss

Added 3 lessons yesterday with the etudes, instructions, and tutorials. To see the sheet-music larger just click on them.

This kind of improv is easier than it sounds. Good luck.cheerleader

I think that he'll be impressed when you turn on MGN's a minor blues shuffle on your stereo and start jamming big time to it. I can sit back with some friends with some beers and just jam for hours. It really is fun.

The fun thing about you MGN, is that you'll be playing to your own accompaniment. It may give you new ideas for future comps. You probably have a ton of musician friends that will be impressed when you bring one of your fiddles to a jam session.

exactly It's also cool to play the blues on an electric violin with effects.
