Most guitarists stay locked into the same patterns and scale shapes for years, unable to break out of the habits and licks they first learnt as a beginner. This leads to creative stagnation, boring solos and a sense that something will always be missing from their playing. Ask yourself this:- When you solo do you normally go straight to your first pentatonic box shape? - Do you normally play in a limited range of 'easy' keys, like A, E, G and C? - Would you like to have complete freedom to visualize and play in any key, in any position on guitar? - Do you only use minor pentatonic scales, or rarely use rich sounding modes to enliven your playing? If the answer to any of the above questions is yes then this book is definitely for you. This book helps you spread out your playing all over the guitar neck. It frees you from playing the same ideas over and over again. This book spurs creativity byopening up the neck and most importantly, it teaches you an incredibly strong visual method to 'hang' scales and licks off 5 easy to remember chord shapes. The CAGED System for Blues Guitar covers both Major and Minor Pentatonic Scales,The Blues Scale and The Mixolydian Mode. With 25 licks for each scale covering all 5 positions, you'll never be short of something interesting to say on your instrument. Contained within are the tricks and secrets that professional guitarists use to unlock the neck and always have something new to play. The most important concept is theCAGED system and it helps you to see the fretboard like the back of your hand and to easily play in any key in any position. This isn't a book just about scales. There are over 100 blues guitar licks in different styles that you will memorise easily, and can form the basis of your new, improved solos. You'll learn tohang these off each chord shape, so wherever you are on the guitar you'll never lose the groove. Each lick is demonstrated with an individual audio example which you can download for free fromwww.fundamental-changes.com – There is over an hour of audio included and 8 tailored backing tracks.This is the method taught at the London College of Music's Guitar Institute and I'm very happy to share these powerful concepts with you in my book. Have fun, and good luck! Joseph Alexander BA Honours, Dip.HE

Easily Master Melodic Phrasing in Your Guitar Solos 'He's just feeling it' is no longer an acceptable explanation of musical ability. This book breaks down melodic feel and phrasing into learnable skills. The most detailed, structured method to develop your own unique voice on the guitar Whether as part of the Complete Guide to Playing Blues Guitar Series, or as a stand-alone work, Melodic Phrasing takes you on a journey through every aspect of musical phrasing. We all have the same 12 notes.... It's how and when we play them that sets the masters apart from the amateurs. We all know it's important to learn the licks and vocabulary of the musicians who we wish to emulate, but in order to develop a unique voice we must learn how to phrase our lines in a personal way. Melodic Phrasing teaches you hundreds of ways to treat even simple lines to make the music your own. Learn to control rhythm and phrasing, and open your mind to infinite new musical possibilities. Melodic Phrasing challenges our perception of what blues soloing is. No longer will you be 'chasing licks' around the fretboard; struggling because you couldn't quite execute or remember the line you were reaching for. In this book you will learn how to develop and control fundamental rhythmic fragments to create and drive your solo forward. By focusing on rhythm and phrasing, and by learning to combine and develop these rhythmic building blocks, the melodies will take care of themselves. This is a natural, organic approach to developing your guitar soloing where you learn to truly improvise and break away from the prison of 'lick playing' or just 'exploring' the minor pentatonic scale. The Complete Guide to Playing Blues Guitar: Melodic Phrasing Contains: Over 160 examples with free audio to download Standard Notation and Tab The most in-depth lessons on rhythm and phrasing available Check out the reviews below: "If you are looking to go deeper than surface level with the blues and start gaining some understanding of what goes on within the melodic inter-weavings this is for you! I love Joseph Alexander's books... he is a great resource for anyone interested in the guitar." "Among the things I like most about these books is that they're laid out not like lessons, but more like practice routines. The emphasis is on getting the ideas into your fingers and ears, not just your head. A very refreshing approach. I look forward to the next one." "The Call & Response practice in this and his other books have helped my playing tremendously" Melodic Phrasing will change the way you approach the guitar. After working through this book you will never 'run out of licks' again; you will be able to create interesting, emotive, musical phrases whenever you want, and keep the audience coming back for more.
