About the event

Jazz and the blues come from the same musical origins and the blues have always been a key part of jazz music.  Jazz has expanded the basic blues progressions and many blues artists like B B King, Bonnie Raitt, Robben Ford, and Keb Mo use the sounds of jazz to add interest and variety to their performances.  

In this workshop, we’ll start with basic three chord Blues progressions and add Jazz inspired chords one step at a time without requiring a lot of music theory.  In a short time, you’ll be playing some pretty far out sounds that you can use to create your own style.  You’ll have your instrument in hand the whole time applying what you are learning.

You’ll leave the workshop with all chord progressions and chord diagrams we cover so you can use them in the future.

Level: For advanced beginner or intermediate musicians with an open mind about music.  A familiarity with basic chords and scales is required.  No requirement for reading music notation.
