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, Keb Mo, etc use the sounds of jazz to add interest and variety to their performances.
In this workshop we’ll start with the most basic three chord Blues progression 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 need to read music notation required.
