blues piano licksThat’s why I’ve partnered with Blues Hall Of Fame Pianist, Bruce Katz, to create this amazing DVD.

Bruce has played with a who’s who of blues. (The Allman Brothers Band, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Delbert McClinton, David “Fathead” Newman, and many others.)

And he takes his experience from the stage and shares so much with his piano students.

(He even taught blues and soul jazz piano at the Berklee College Of Music for 15 years too!)

A great player and a skilled teacher. A rare combo of talents.

We’re all in for a treat!

More Tips To Help You Use Blues Piano Licks

We’ll be sharing more resources from Bruce more in the coming weeks.

In the meantime invest some time into the video above.

1. Notice how I use it over a traditional 12 bar blues chord progression and also a jazz chord progression.

2. Also, pay close attention to how I combine major pentatonic, blues scale, and multi notes to create a tasty piece of blues language.

Even though I’m teaching this piece of blues vocab, you’re going to get a ton of mileage out of it by using it in many other styles.

3. One of the things that really makes this lick “pop” is accenting the upbeat at the end of the lick.

Can you hear how it brings a sense of excitement and motion?

Improve Your Blues & Jazz Playing

We’ve got a ton more of these cool rhythm and accent concepts we’ll be featuring in the new DVD.

If you want to improve your rhythm you’ll love what Bruce shows you inside the program.

In the mean time grab the one from the video above. It’s a cool one and will definitely get you started.

Enjoy your practice and we’ll see you next time!
