    One of the aspects of guitar playing that I love and enjoy is improvising.
    Through improvisation I can express myself freely, a way to escape from the world and forget about all my problems.

    Here are my 10 improvisation tips to help get you started:
    1. Learn Pentatonic scales, this is the most used scale for soloing on guitar in rock and blues music.
    2. Learn Natural Minor scale or Aeolian, this is also the most used scale for guitarist.
    3. Learn Major scale or Ionian, this mode is the first of the 7 modes.
    4. Learn chord tones and triads. Targeting the right notes in the chords you playing over to make melodies. As the chord changes, you change the notes that you play. Ex: in C Major chords: target C - E - G to start or end your solo phrases.
    5. Learn Modes: Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian.
    6. Learn licks from other musicians and playing it over various backing tracks to work on timing and feel, and make it your own. Good artists copy, great artists steal.-Pablo Picasso
    7. Sing what you play and play what you sing, let your heart creates the music.
    8. Learn songs and melodies by ear is a great way to develop your listening skills.
    9. Use phrasing, rhythmic and dynamic variations to make your solos interesting and I think learn to play blues is one of the best way to learn phrasing.
    10. Learn everyday, its better to practice everyday for 10 minutes than to play 10 hours on the weekend..consistency is the key and repetition is the mother of all skills.

  • 12 Bar Blues - Piano Duet with Peter the Elephant - Thailand


    Please read the description for more information about the content of this video.

    More videos: Music for Elephants

    Watch Peter the elephant discover/play the clarinet:

    Light-heated musical mayhem when Peter the elephant joins in a 12 bar blues on piano with his trunk -- entirely of his own accord.

    I've noticed elephants, such as Peter have moods at different times of day. Usually in the cooler early evening before nightfall (In Thailand) they are in a more relaxed and potentially playful mood.

    Peter the elephant lives at Thailand.

    Photos playing piano for elephants in Thailand here:
    There are other similar albums on this Goggle+ account.

    With reference to recent comments (19/11/2013)

    * The guy in the background is Pat, Peter's mahout. He is Thai. A mahout is a person that devotes his or her life to looking after an elephant, usually in Asia. This is a dangerous job.

    * Pat is responsible for Peter's well-being, day and night, all year round. Pat's daily duties include keeping Peter safe from other bull elephants as well as looking after visitors to Peter's home at the Royal Elephant Kraal in Ayutthaya, Thailand.

    * Pat and Peter have a special bond.

    * Pat is not reading a magazine in this video, he is filming with his tablet.

    * Pat is not prodding Peter, he is just reminding him not to get too carried away and smash the piano keys with his heavy trunk as he has, unintentionally, on previous occasions.

    * The chain around Peter's neck is flimsy. It is there so Pat can walk at Peter's side and guide him occasionally around vehicles or other potentially harmful bull elephants on the way to bath and drink in the river, for instance. Those with experience working with elephants in Thailand know this flimsy chain is no restraint to an elephant whatsoever. It is not there to cause Peter any harm, just the reverse.

    * Peter has NOT been trained to play piano. This video is Peter's spontaneous reaction to a piano during a brief encounter one evening between Peter and Paul Barton, a visiting pianist to the elephant Kraal where Peter lives.

    * This video is one of a series in Music for Elephants. There are 23 videos with piano and elephants in this playlist

    * Piano keys are no longer made of ivory. The piano in this video has plastic keys. All piano keys are made from synthetic polymers and plastics. The use of ivory for piano keys decreased dramatically after World War II and thankfully stopped altogether in 1989 with the CITIES worldwide ban on ivory trade.

  • Spice Up a Boring 12 Bar Blues


    Tuesday Blues #220

    If you want to play blues, you've gotta know the 12 bar blues progression. BUT, don't just learn the shuffle pattern and call it a day. There's so much that you can do to expand the sound of 12 bar blues.

    In this lesson, we'll take a look at one way you can spice things up: bass passing notes. We'll use a couple of simple bass moves to walk into the next chord. This is the easiest way that I know of to help you go beyond that plain sounding shuffle sound.

    Don't know the 12 bar pattern yet...


    These are certainly not the only things that you can do to punch up a 12 bar blues. You can add MicroLicks, chord moves and so much more. Check out the related lessons to help you step up your blues game.

    Good luck and...

    12 - Bar - Blues in A

    It seems like everyone has their own way of playing over the 12-bar-blues. Mostly it ends up being some combination of minor pentatonic and major pentatonic, with a few chord tones added here or there. Watch the scale grids for ideas. Top left is the blues scale, top right are the chord tones (arpeggios), and the modes (in A) are on the bottom! Happy shredding, shredders!

    When shredding: stuff to keep in mind:

    Keep it simple, and repeat good ideas and sounds you like.

    Try to play what's in your head, not what you're looking at (like those chord grids up there) or what your fingers have memorized.

    Be expressive! Try to add hammer-ons, string rakes, palm mutes, pull-offs, bends, slides, vibrato, or whammy bar to as many notes as you can! Listen to the pros, I guarantee that's what they're doing, unless they're shredding at a million notes a second.

    Most importantly: Learn some useful vocabulary! You must either copy some phrases from someone else, or come up with your own phrases to play. Music is a language with MANY dialects - you MUST learn the basics of the language to sound good, AND a the idiosyncrasies of the dialect to sound hip! That, or you're some kind of genius who automatically knows what do do (doubtful) so don't be lazy! Learn some basic blues licks, they will take you far! I learned some Dave Gilmour and Jimi Hendrix licks 20 years ago and I still play 'em all the time!

    My name is Renzo, I make these tracks. I'm a guitar teacher touring musician and music producer from the great city of Oakland, California. Please SUBSCRIBE, I upload at least once a week so don't miss out!

  • 12 Bar Blues with a Country Twang - Guitar Lesson


    Download the guitar tablature at

    Lesson ID: A0148; Key: G

    In this country guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play a variation of the 12 bar blues that has a country & bluegrass twang. In both country blues arrangements below, we’ll use triplets to spice up our country fills and we’ll also replace strumming with country crosspicking in certain measures to make our rhythm sound even more country. These country 12 bar blues progressions are in the key of G and you can use the country fill riffs that we’re studying in this guitar lesson with a bunch of other country & bluegrass songs. Pay close attention to how we’re structuring each country guitar lick around the rhythm chords.

  • Fingerpicking 12 Bar Blues in A |Tuesday Blues # 010


    For Tuesday Blues #010-we'll take a look at an option for the V Chord in the key of A.

    We'll link up our A7 Chordy Lick from Lesson 002 and the D7 Melody from Lesson 009 and work in this little melody in E.

    If you haven't gotten the A7 or D7 down, go check out those lessons and then hop back into lesson 10. This is where we bring it all together into a nice fingerpicking 12 bar blues in A.

    Remember to keep your alternating bass going strong throughout!

    Be sure to stop by the website to pick up the TAB for this lesson. Here's the link:

    Hope you dig this lesson and you nail this 12 bar progression. Of course, if you'd like help with this, just let me know.

    Good luck and PLAY ON!
