    How To Play Blues Guitar Like  B.B King


 
  If you want to learn how to play blues guitar like B.B King you
  must first understand and learn to recognize by ear the evolution
  of the blues chord progressions.

  Although B.B King's style is almost exclusively single note lead
  lines and riffs, one of the key secrets' to his sound is the
  chord progressions played in the background, this gives B.B's
  notes their different musical color.

  I recommend beginning to learn how to play blues guitar like B.B
  King by recording the following blues chord progressions and
  practice playing your lead parts over the recorded progressions.

  Each of the blues progressions are presented in the key of C.
  B.B's solo's are derived from the minor pentatonic and blues
  scales.

  Try playing the C minor pentatonic scale and the C blues scale
  over these progressions, listening carefully to the musical
  weight and density of each note as you play them against
  different harmonic backgrounds of each blues progression.

  The notes of the C minor pentatonic scale: C  Eb  F  G  Bb

  The notes of the C Blues scale: C  Eb  F  Gb  G  Bb

  really want to learn how to play blues guitar like B.B King play
  them over and over until you can recognize each progression,
  remember B.B performs almost every night of the year, so he gets
  to listen to these chords on a daily basis, he knows these
  progressions in every little detail that's why he doesn't get lost
  when he's soloing.

Rave Reviews for Express Guitar:

 

As a student of Mike Hayes since 1999, I have found his teaching methods and products to be first class. Whatever style or area of music I have been interested in, he has provided me with useful information, advice and study materials. His style of teaching and teaching products enabled me to progress through his guitar course far quicker than I ever imagined. He also helps in teaching yourself to find and develop your own style of music. Mike’s teaching gives his student’s the ability to become useful musicians, not just guitarists.

This course teaches us how to learn, how to retain, and how to recall information quickly. This entire program is built around "connected learning" with key phrases, picture words ( yes there is such a thing ) and the most dynamic personal motivator I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

The course is varied, in-depth and well-structured, making learning and comprehension fast, thorough and enjoyable. It’s a great way of learning, as you can pace yourself and move onto the next stage when you feel competent. I find this course both innovative and inspirational. I find myself leaving Mike’s lessons with the determination to reach my new goals.
