Downright Blue in E Minor
This one is different and much fun. Our first shot (haha) at some authentic blues, and what do we really have here ... a bunch of guitars plunking out bluesy E minor tones. And at a slow, slow pace.
What you want to do hear is ear training. And technique building. For the ear, make every note count. If you play a note that doesn't quite fit or sound great, now is the time to get rid of it. Reach for the sweet tones only.
Now, some technique to get that done. Play single string melodies on the first and second strings only. And be sure to include the open notes on both the e string and the b string. As you run up and down either string, slide into your notes, throw in a harmonic, follow up and syncopate with open strings ... it all works.
