How To Play Uptown Blues

Uptown Blues is the sound you hear from blues players that tend to have a jazzier sound to their playing. Robben Ford and Duke Robillard are a couple examples. Most blues players tend to use the minor blues scale predominantly, which is the most common tool for playing the blues. Lightning Hopkins is a good example of using the minor blues scale primarily. While there may be various tricks used to get that uptown sound, a great way to get it is to mix the major blues scale with the minor blues scale, creating a hybrid of the two scales. In This series of videos I explain how to combine the major and minor blues scales to get that uptown blues sound. If you like the videos please subscribe and leave comments. I tend to produce more videos when I get feedback from the public. Enjoy and keep jamming!

      Apples and hand grenades coopmrisan there, NoFear. Rodgers has a ring and a track record of being a top-flight QB. Smith? Not quite there. Yet. If Smith wins the Super Bowl this year, there will still be a call to replace him next year.

      I was just diagnosed with Thin Melanoma on Tuesday. But my left lymph node on my neck is quite swollen and very tender but my right is not. I have an appointment at Dermatology on Monday the 2nd of April so hopefully they will be abke to examine that. Hopefully they will examine that. I wish everyone the best of luck who has also been diagnosed recently, or has had it for a while. It’s never fair is it…. But Keep smiling through
