Ben explains more in our video:
The keys/positions are Dm/3rd, Em/5th, G/2nd, Am/4th and Bm/6th. The course sets out by revisiting chugging, but this time in three chord, 12-bar, 2nd position blues. You are then taught a pentatonic scale to improvise with, then a tune in the same scale/key and, finally, the full play along backing track.
The same learning routine is then applied to eight specially composed blues pieces in different styles, including jazz swing, Santana latin-style, blues/funk, New Orleans, shuffle, blues swing and more.
