Improvise with the 12-Bar Blues
In the last blues lesson (12-bar blues), you learned how to play the 12-bar blues in the key of F, using simplified 2-note chords. You also learned easy right-hand patterns using three of the six tones in the blues scale (F, Eb and Ab). It’s time to take it to the next step and learn to improvise with the 12-bar blues.
This video moves on from there by introducing you to the other three tones in the blues scale (Bb, B and C) while playing the same 12-bar progression in the left hand. When you combine all six tones you can come up with unique riffs and patterns all your own. The good news is almost anything will sound good! C’mon, live dangerously and try your hand at improvisation. You can’t go wrong with the blues!
