You must know the Freddy King style, major and minor pentatonic scales, you must know both. Clapton is mostly pentatonic. By copping MANY solos I've cracked the code on pentatonics. If you only know the minor,,,, it's time time to go to the next level. And if you are strong with both pentatonic scale, next is Dorian (Santana). Also blues rhythm guitar, what you are doing most of the time. Many hot lead players, being a great rhythm player will have you win the audition. The singer will love you. And, you must have good/great vibrato, bend that note up an make it sing, really say something. There is a best way to do this and you will want to add it to your practice routine. You'll be glad you did, and so will the people listening.

I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

I have been recording & performing blues music since late 2004, & in that time I've acquired a lot of knowledge on the nuances involved in making blues music truly sing on the guitar. We will cover rhythm guitar approaches, chord voicing, when to play (& not to play), developing leads, & working/blending as an ensemble member of a blues band.

Seemed a little disorganized. It might have been part of the "getting to know me" process and what I wanted to accomplish. The hour went by very fast!

I have taken lessons from Benjamin, and found him to be an excellent teacher. If you are looking for someone to teach you bass, or guitar you can't find a more patient teacher. I would recommend him to anyone seeking lessons.

Online Blues Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching high level guitar,vocals and bass for the last 20 years,and as a result of my extensive teaching experience, I know what works for people and what doesn't. I know how to get the results that help people grow as the musician they want to be as quickly as possible. My name Paul Campo and I grew up in the Boston area where at the time the public high school system offered high level music theory classes. I took advantage and had an understanding of high level music theory by the time I was 17 years old. At 17yrs old I started studies at Berklee College of Music in Boston, but after a year I moved to L.A to pursue a music opportunity I was offered. I've been playing guitar and singing in bands for 40 years and teaching full time for the last 20yrs on the West Coast from L.A to Seattle. I see alot of the insights to the musicianship of classic American music fading away and getting lost in oblivion, so I try to teach what I've learned over the years, while helping ...

Paul is a great guitar teacher ! Awesome blues rhythm. Electric , acoustic . You name it! Learn chords scales and theory. Learn songs you want to play without being overwhelmed by over complicated information overload. I really appreciate Paul’s approach to teaching guitar and both myself and my son will continue training with him. Thank you Paul! 👍
Glen
I’ve worked with Paul C. for several years with great success... Paul was masterful in transitioning me from Blues, to Country, and even even did a bit of Jazz.
Are you Looking for a dedicated Musican, one who loves the craft, will instill that passion into you, then I’d recommend Paul.. the raw skills Paul taught me, reading music, playing scales, learning songs, and stepping out of the closet and playing live has been awesomely executed.. Paul is family now.. I’d recommend him absolutely... give him a try, I think you’ll enjoy music more than ever at the hands of Paul..

Paul has been amazing for my son. He is very patient and engaging. He always comes prepared and follows through with what he teaches. He comes up with new ideas and finds ways that help with how your child learns best. My son is leaps and bounds better since we switched to Paul !

"Ryan has definitely opened up my perspective with regard to learning my instrument and "hearing" tonal options for music I like to play. I'm a working Dad with very limited time for lessons and practice, so an online learning platform has worked best for me. Ryan has been very accommodating and flexible. More than that, he's been extremely patient with my learning style. In addition to opening up my instrument for me, he's fostered a passion for learning guitar and a taste for new music that I may not have listened to/learned otherwise. I love music and because of Ryan, I've found a very heartfelt, almost tangible, passion for playing it. Ryan...thank you!!"

"I have been taking lessons with Eric for almost three years and I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking about taking any kind of music lessons. I initially started with blues guitar lessons because I wanted to be able to play my favorite songs or maybe impress girls. Over the years Eric got me interested in so much more.

I learned music theory, jazz standards, improvisation, fingerstyle techniques, how to play and sing at the same time, and how to write and record my own songs. He inspired me to take on piano as a second instrument, initially through him but eventually through classically trained instructor.

What started as basic guitar lessons for a potential hobby turned into my tiny apartment becoming cluttered with musical instruments and audio recording equipment. For this I only have Eric to thank."

I would really recommend him to any age because he is a great teacher and very personable to take instruction from. He has offered to take my lessons on-line while recover from surgery.

"I am a 64 year old woman who wanted to learn to play electric guitar blues lead. I have worked with musicians who teach and have been very disappointed. As soon as I read Chris' profile, I knew he would be a good teacher. I am a professional tutor and I could tell by the way Chris wrote about teaching that he would be skilled. I was absolutely accurate. Chris knows a lot about music and guitar playing, and he is also thoughtful and very present to the student. He is flexible and can move with a student who needs that. He also can work from a theory based place if the student needs that. To help me, he has written tab guitar licks for me, recorded Mp3 examples, and chord diagrams. I cannot speak highly enough about Chris as a teacher and highly recommend him."
