Scale practice is one of the most popular areas of practice that we spend time on as we develop our intermediate and advanced playing skills. This is why it's so important to approach scale practice correctly and develop a series of habits involved with scale practice that will help us gain a very high level of skill, so that over time we can start using scales to perform improvised solos. In this video I'm going to run through seven things you need to avoid as you spend time developing your scales to higher and higher levels...

ACOUSTIC GUITAR 012: Acoustic Blues - Harmonies & Riffs...
#GuitarLesson #AcousticGuitar #BluesGuitar

Playing Acoustic Blues ideas offers the guitarist much more than what strumming an eight or twelve bar blues progression (with a few dominant 7th chord patterns) can provide.

Acoustic Guitar - Episode #012, When studying Blues, we generally think of song formats used by players like Muddy Waters, or Buddy Guy, maybe Eric Clapton or Stevie Ray Vaughn and how those chord changes and the blues ideas they apply are largely based around standard 8 and 12-bar progressions, (with fairly predictable chord changes). However, when we check out acoustic blues music (especially artists like; Lightening Hopkins, Keb Mo, Gary Davis or John Lee Hooker), these players approach blues differently. They'll use non-traditional riffs, a lot of originality in their playing styles, and they'll alter the way they use phrases and turnarounds. In this episode, we're going to practice riffs that do all of those things in order to help you become a much better Acoustic Blues Fingerstyle Guitar Player. As always, the handout for this lesson (along with the Part Two video), will be in the members area of CreativeGuitarStudio.com. Enjoy the lesson!

If you want to get the most mileage out of using small triads for riff building and for soloing, just as guitarists like Mark Knopfler and Joe Satriani use them, one of the best ways to accomplish this won't be by trying to learn dozens and dozens of small triad ideas as smaller-chords and licks. Instead, just begin by analyzing the guitar fingerboard from within the larger triad template system. Using this approach makes it easier to understand all of the common smaller moveable triad chord patterns and how they can be cherry picked to custom design other smaller shapes. And, what's really cool - is that with this system (by taking just only 5 common moveable chord outlines) (these are the patterns that will often be explained from the neck layout concept known of as the "CAGED" system). And, from these common moveable chord patterns, all you need to do is isolate and apply any smaller segment of triad idea that you'd like to use for riffs or solos. Let's zoom in on the neck and I'll help you get started with understanding the shapes and how to go about using this principle...
