This is like what I do to improvise but way more in depth and more awesome! The only problem is I play a lot of blues and boogie songs out of E. Maybe a future lesson…

I want to see someone put these licks to use on a song in G! Anyone have an idea for a song we can use? Something from YouTube?

Hey Ben, love your tutorials. In ‘Borrowing the Blues’ at 4:55 did you say using a flat 6th or 7th?

Great question and it wasn’t clear. What I mean is that we’re taking the 6th tone that is there (the E note) and replacing it with the flat 7 tone (the f natural). Thanks!
