Improvising on a Blues: “Bluegrass Stomp,” Part 1
In the last lesson, you learned Bill Monroe’s blues tune “Bluegrass Stomp.” In this lesson Chad talks about improvising on a tune like “Bluegrass Stomp.” He starts by showing you a D major pentatonic scale, which is a great scale to use when improvising on a D chord. He also shows you how you can flat the third of that scale to play over the G chord, as well as a simple chord position to play on the A chord. That gives you a starting point for each of the chords in the tune. Then Chad gives you the opportunity to play along with him in some call-and-response improvising exercises.
