Welcome to Blues Lead Guitar Module 4 - Making The Blues Changes!
In this module we're going to be exploring how to play off the chords rather than just sticking to one scale right the way through the blues sequence - this is kinda grown up playing and what many of the great blues masters did - many without knowing the theory!
The big deal is to develop a part of your brain the registers where you are in the song at all times so you can choose to 'make the changes' or ignore them without even thinking about it - but that takes practice!
Hope you enjoy it!
