In this course we’re going to focus around a post-war Chicago Blues style that applies to many other styles of blues and improvised music.
Explore the history and development of New Orleans Piano with Jon Cleary. We cover 12/8 Grooves, Rhumba & Habanera Grooves, Blues, & Funk styles.
Learn to play the F Jazz Blues using the Hammond Organ. We explore the B3’s anatomy & controls, walking bass lines, comping, turnarounds, & improvisation.
We explore the core elements of improvisation such as: chord tone soloing, approach patterns, target tones and chromatic passing tones.
We use the minor blues progression to explore pentatonic, blues scale, and modal improvisation. We apply these concepts to the famous tune “Mr P.C.”
If you’re looking at this course, there’s a good chance it’s because you’ve heard boogie-woogie, and it immediately lit up something inside you. Welcome.
