Robben Ford – The Blues & Beyond
Jul 04 2014
The Blues & Beyond reveals Robben’s advanced concepts for improvising and comping. Performing his well-known renditions of several blues classics, Robben demonstrates how he plays over chord changes. Robben also discusses phrasing and playing “outside” using pentatonic, diminished, and melodic minor scales.
Check out the “Miles Groove,” where Robbem plays a great solo combining blues, bebop, and modern “out” lines. And to help you capture Robben’s unique style, most of the solos, chords, and playing demonstrations have been transcribed in the music and tab book included.
Robben Ford a true innovator in contemporary jazz fusion reveals his advanced concepts for improvising and comping. If you’re going to learn from one of the modern master of blues, this is one of the best you could choose from.
This DVD has some good technique, but it is definitely NOT for beginners. There is very little “instruction” in the video; some insight to the chords and scales played. The video is more of a “one man sitting in a chair concert” than anything else. Some of the “songs” played are WAY too long. However, if you want to see a guy that can REALLY play and do it effortlessly… Robben Ford is it. This video picks up on his previous video, so I would reccomend taking a look at that before buying this if you are a beginner.
