The Tastiest Blues Lessons on TrueFire
Creative Blues Performance is a collection of TrueFire lessons curated by Guitar Techniques Editor Neville Marten. Neville’s selection of lessons from top TrueFire educators is designed to build on your blues rhythm and lead technique and broaden your breadth of knowledge and ability.

”I’ve selected lessons from Corey Congilio’s 50 Blues Rhythms. We all know how important rhythm guitar is in blues. But even though we spend the vast majority of our time NOT soloing, many people still choose to give their rhythm playing a back seat. Corey Congilio’s excellent 50 Blues Rhythms provides you with an instant bag of great accompanying ideas that will make you the guy people want to jam with.

One of the world’s classiest blues players, Matt Schofield is brilliant at putting across his ideas in simple to understand sound bytes. Matt has designed his course Blues Speak: Playing The Changes to help you navigate the chords, infusing your blues with jazzy inflections that will make your playing sound cool and sophisticated.

Corey Congilio’s Hip Blues: Outside Lines is the perfect follow-up to Matt’s ‘Changes’ course, and takes things a step further. Corey elaborates on the idea of using ‘outside’ notes to create ear-grabbing licks that bring tension and excitement, before resolving back ‘inside’ to bring welcome resolution.

Then there’s Josh Smith’s Blue Highways. One of today’s most exciting guitarists, Josh melds blues, country, jazz, swing and gospel ideas into a style that’s both exciting and modern. In this course Josh shares some of his ideas and approaches, perfect for adding to your own repertoire of licks and providing a wealth of ‘lightbulb’ moments.”

Who better than the top editors of our cherished guitar magazines to lend their eyes, ears and guitar acumen to help guide how we put our precious practice time to optimal use? Thanks Neville!

You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the performance studies. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson.

You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are also included to work with on your own.
