Embraced by listeners and players alike, Robben's innovative and soulful musicality triggered a revolution in electric blues guitar styling. In this 6-hour, interactive video Blues Revolution course, Robben steps you through his Chicago blues influences, chord and scale vocabulary, rhythm guitar techniques, improvisational approaches and harmonic insight for crafting the fresh, contemporary lines that comprise his signature sound -- it's all here!
Robben's previous books and videos cover a lot of ground but never before has he prepared such a comprehensive curriculum as the one he presents in this Blues Revolution interactive learning experience. At last, ALL of the dots are seamlessly connected.
Robben organized Blues Revolution into a series of six sections, each covering essential disciplines and techniques:
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
