When constructing examples for lessons, I try to do it in a way that clearly illustrates the point in this lesson. If I should make real music, I would make other choices and include more variations. The example in the previous part illustrates the relation between our three note chords and the song from the Tritone Blues lesson. But it gets boring when you play only A in the bass for 10 out of the 12 bars. So I would probably use another variation of the IV chord (D7), at least I would use it as a variations. If you play this chord at 4th and 5th fret, you get D7, and at 6th and 7th fret it will be E7.

In the example below, I am using the chords mentioned above. But when doing so, we move away from the two shapes we started with. And we will hang on to these shapes for a few more (forthcomming) lessons.

Modern Guitar Method Jammin' the Blues, #3
This volume in the Modern Guitar Method Supplement series (formerly known as the Frank Vignola play-along series) contains useful, well-structured solos for 16 chourses of the blues in the most common keys. Funky, bluesy, and bop oriented lines allow you to feel and hear what it is like to play a well-constructed solo. Some of these etudes have been recorded at both a slower practice tempo and at performance tempo. In the performance tempo renditions, the solo segments are often followed by numerous choruses featuring the rhythm section only. This format allows for individual practice of the written solos or elaboration of original ideas with a "live" rhythm section.

The Blues from Rock to Jazz
In this DVD, Don uses the basic blues progression as a vehicle to teach chords and soloing techniques found in contemporary blues and jazz fusion. He starts by guiding you through the dominant chord family, showing the basic chords and their substitutions for comping, plus scales, arpeggios and melodic ideas for improvising. Next, he covers how to solo over each chord in the 12-bar blues using secondary dominants and the turnaround. Finally, he breaks down three jazz-fusion 12-bar blues solos, with an in-depth analysis of each bar.
