Part Four: Double Stops

Part 4 Running time : 38:25

These examples are the coolest musical examples to learn that will take your musicality to a whole new level. You are now really on the road to Spicing Up The Blues.

Part Five: Minor Blues Progression

Part 5 Running time : 33:01

This section focuses on the MINOR BLUES. The Minor Blues uses all minor chords instead of the usual dominant 7 chords.
This Minor Blues progression often sounds more “blue” than the usual dominant 7 based blues progression.
Frank demonstrates by example. He shares some incredible blues solos that are a must.
Frank also shares a fundamental Blues concept that is vital to be understood to play the Blues authentically.
You are now truly Spicing Up The Blues.

Part 6 Running time : 01:02:55

This section reveals some all-new Pentatonic Scales. They’re called Hybrid Pentatonics.

These are so cool you will wonder how you lived without them.

Part Seven: Blues Chromaticism.

Part 7 Running time : 38:54

In this chapter the focus in on CHROMATICISM in the Blues. The Blue note is the b5th of the scale. That is well established in the Blues. Frank, in the interest of Spicing Up The Blues, will open your eyes to realizing that really, any note will work if it’s done right in passing! This section is really Spicing Up The Blues.

Part Eight: Rhythm Guitar

Part 8 Running time : 01:36:34

n this section the focus is on playing Blues Rhythm Guitar. A lot of emphasis is placed on soloing and the single line these days but, in reality, most of the time guitar players are required to play rhythm guitar. In this section Frank demonstrates essential Blues rhythm guitar examples. The exercises start simply and then progressively more complex. Spicing Up Your Rhythm Guitar playing is a vital part of becoming a Blues guitar hero.

Part Nine: Blues Song Riffs.

Part 9 Running time : 01:06:10

In this section the focus is on 12-Bar Song Riffs. So many songs have been based on this type of idea. This section is an important extension of the Blues Rhythm Guitar in the previous section. The difference is that these examples are actually riffs that act as the rhythmic and melodic basis under the melody of songs. These example will no-doubt inspire your own Blues songs.

Part Ten: The b5 Passing Chord.

Part 10 Running time : 01:10:54

In this section the focus is on SPICING UP THE BLUES!. For those of you who have mastered the material so far and are hungry to learn more…this section takes you to the notes outside the norm!!! Frank also introduced some new scale choices.

Frank demonstrates playing “outside” within the Blues. Blues purists will probably not approve while others will think it the coolest of all the sections. Whichever way you view it, it is definitely NOT boring. For those who are not afraid to take the Blues to new territory then this, and successive chapters are for you folks!

The INFORMATIONAL GEM contained in this section will inspire you into Spicing Up The Blues like never before, all based ironically, on the “b5th” passing chord.

Part Eleven: The b5 Diminished Passing Chord.

Part 11 Running time : 30:11

In this section the focus is on more notes outside the norm by adding a new diminished 7th passing chord in the 6th bar of the Blues.
This then gives us another scale to play to Spicing Up The Blues even further!!!
Frank demonstrates the scale shapes and then shares awesome musical examples.

Part Twelve: The Altered 5 Chord – Bar 12.

Part 12 Running time : 47:05

In this section the focus is on more notes outside the norm by adding an altered dominant chord in the very last bar of the 12 bar Blues progression!!!

Many players play an E7#9 at the end of the progression to turn the whole progression back around to the top without realizing the melodic and harmonic possibilities of these last 2 beats or even the whole last bar of the Blues progression.
Frank shows you what’s possible in a musical and enlightening way Spicing Up The Blues to the max!
