Mixing Major And Minor In 1st Position

Mixing up the Major and Minor Blues sounds can be essential to really nailing the blues sound…

… but it can also be a big pain in the neck!

When do you change? How do you change? How do you practice it?

All of that and more in today’s video…

If you want more info on Major Minor Blues Shapes (that I refer to in the video) it can be found HERE

      No need for the god thing, please. Sorry!
      There is no such thing, especially in the devil’s music.
      By the way, there is no such thing as the devil either, but they both make great material, including gospel.

    One of the most practical lessons I’ve ever seen. Foundational building block stuff. Really helpful to get you venturing out of the normal lanes. Great work, Griff!
