Blues Guitar Improvisation – 3 Ways to Boost your Guitar Skills!

Blues Guitar Improvisation is definitely one of the most satisfying skills you can study. To an outsider though, it could look like some sort of mystical dark art. Exactly how do the professionals play those spectacular solos straight off the top of their head, without even thinking about it? Well, luckily it is a skill that just about anyone can learn, given the correct practice routine along with a little advice here and there. The following are three absolutely essential tips that will set you on the path to blues guitar mastery. Buckle up, here goes:

1. Study the pentatonic and blues scales. There are 5 patterns for each scale and they will be the basis for what you play 80-90% of the time, perhaps even 100% if you are like some players I know. These scales give THE sound of blues guitar, so you need to study them.

2. Learn as many blues licks as humanly possible. They are the musical guitar phrases that make up each and every guitar solo. So, if you’re going to study blues guitar improvisation, you’re going to need a lot of them!

3. Practice your scales and your licks over blues backing tracks. Get a hold of as many as you possibly can and simply repeat each lick over the top. Blend in the scales, some of your own ideas, even experiment with the licks you’ve learned trying to make them more of your own. Before too long you will recognize your own personal style of playing will start to shine through.

When you stick to these simple steps, you absolutely can’t fail to boost your skills. This is the very process that every blues guitar player in the world follows. Eric Clapton learned every Freddie King lick he could, Hendrix borrowed from Buddy Guy and Stevie Ray studied everything Hendrix had to offer. It’s all about learning the licks, putting your own spin on them and making something new.
