Robben Ford – Blues Revolution
Robben organized Blues Revolution into a series of six sections, each covering essential disciplines and techniques:
- Section 1: Fundamentals
Robben presents essential principles for developing your individual musicality; crafting a melodic vocal styling; and learning how to listen, practice, play, emulate and free yourself of patterns.
- Section 2: Chicago Blues
Robben takes you back to his Chicago and country blues roots with demonstrations of rhythm and lead work inspired by the School of Little Walter and other early influences.
- Section 3: Chords & Comping
Chord vocabulary, rhythm/comping techniques, movement and themes are some of Robben’s favorite subjects and he leaves no stones unturned in this illuminating series of demonstrations and performances.
- Section 4: Scales & Applications
Harmonic perspective and soloing applications for triads, modes, pentatonic, diminished and altered scales are covered in great detail over this series of lessons. In short, what we’ve all been yearning for all these years!
- Section 5: Soloing & Improvisation
Playing over changes, crafting solos, phrasing, vibrato and key techniques are focused on and presented in bite-sized, very accessible demonstrations and performances. It all comes together here.
- Section 6: Performances
Robben puts all of the above to work in a series of illustrative performances, which are featured in each of the sections. YES, it’s all transcribed, tabbed and you get the rhythm tracks to practice over.
