Rolly Brown has spent a good bit of his guitar career navigating the territory between the more primal and emotional forms of blues and the more cerebral and sophisticated elements of jazz as they apply to the acoustic guitar. In this video lesson, he explores the large blurry area where the two closely related genres meet. Beginning with an exploration of how the bass line can imply chords which transform a basic 12 bar blues into a jazz progression, Rolly shows how a blues player can add a touch of jazz to his playing, and how a jazz player can increase the blues feel of certain jazz standards. This includes discussion of scales, blue notes, chord movement and chord substitution, as the student learns several instructive arrangements.
