    I am interested in purchasing the Major Minor Blues Shape Course. I'm wondering, does it include studies of the Minor Blues Scale with the b5th and the Major Blues Scale with the b3rd? Thanks. Rob.

    Griff will provide you with a solo example in each of the 5 "sections" of the neck. Each one combines the Major and minor blues scale/sound in that area.

    Yes, including the Major and minor blue notes.

    First he will demonstrate playing the Major and minor "Boxes" in that area and then play up and down each scale from each root note within that area. All solos are done in "G".

    The main focus is in playing these scales up and down from the root notes (pivot points), rather than from the lowest note in the Box.

    For example:

    He'll start with G minor Box 1 and G Major Box 2. There is a G root note on the 6th, 4th and 1st strings.

    First he'll play up and down each Box from the low G.

    Then each blues scale from each of the 3 G's in that area.

    Then he will demonstrate a solo example combining the Major and minor blues sounds in that area, explaining what is happening along the way.

    He will repeat the process for each of the other 4 sections/areas.


    You will learn the "Boxes", if you are not already familiar with them, how to play each scale from each root note within each box and how to combine the Major and minor blues sounds in a solo in each of the 5 areas.

    That's quite a lot for one relatively "small" course.:sneaky:
