Swing Blues encompasses a variety of genres from the jazzy influenced Jump and West Coast styles to the Western Swing and Rockabilly styles of the 40's, 50s and 60's. Guitarists like T-Bone walker, Bill Jennings, Tiny Grimes, Duke Robillard, Hollywood Fats and Charlie Christian are widely acknowledged for establishing the role of the guitar in this exciting and still very popular musical genre.
David Blacker's Lead Edition of the Swing Blues Survival Guide guides you through all of the essential concepts and techniques you'll need to play solid lead guitar across virtually the entire Swing Blues songbook.

"In the Lead edition of my Swing Blues Survival Guide, we're going to look at approaches like note targeting, phrasing, transposing phrases to unlock different areas of the fretboard, playing off of chords, playing through transitions, and working with chromaticism. We'll then apply those techniques across 12 soloing Performance Studies covering the stylistic approaches of many of the great swing blues players. "

David organized the course into two sections. In the first section, you'll learn the 5 key concepts that form the basis for playing swing blues lead guitar: Note Targeting 101, Transpose It Down, Transpose It Up, Chromaticism and Pull-Off Backslides.

In the second section, you'll play your way through 12 Performance Studies applying all of the essential concepts and techniques that you learned in the first section. David demonstrates all of the Performance Studies over rhythm tracks and then breaks them down by stepping you through the key concepts and techniques employed in the solo.

Billy Boy (2 Solos) - "In the first solo of Billy Boy, we're going to look at some great Bill Jennings ideas. Some key take-aways are a great transition lick over the 7th & 8th measures, and a classic II-V-I turnaround. In the second solo ofBilly Boy, we're going to move up the neck and look at some great Bill Jennings ideas that play off of key chord shapes. We'll look at another great 7th & 8th measure transition riff and a II-V-I turnaround."

Swing It On Over (1 Solo) - "In Swing It On Over, we'll look at some ideas inspired by the great solo on the Hank Williams song Move It On Over. It's in the key of E, and incorporates some great major/minor based pentatonic fingerings and western swing style phrasing. The key take-aways from this piece are the movement between minor & major pentatonic fingerings and rolling hammer-ons. This Performance Study also employs a lot of key note targeting and playing through the chord changes."

Shades of Duke (2 Solos) - "Shades of the Duke is a look at two solos in the style of Duke Robillard. Duke is a master swing blues stylist, and someone you've got to spend a minute studying to get a solid handle on. I highly recommend all his recordings, but the album Swing is a great starting place. It features a ton of great swing blues language and phrasing. The two solos are in the key of Bb, a very common swing blues key, and are meant to be played together as one long solo. They incorporate some key melody based riffs, transitional elements, II-V-I turnarounds, and ideas in multiple octaves and positions on the neck."

Elementary, Mr. Watson (1 Solo) - "This Performance Study is a take on a Texas style shuffle in the style of Junior Watson. Junior Watson is a great west coast blues player. I highly recommend the William Clarke album Double Dealin', where Junior's playing really shines within a great harp/guitar jump sound. He spans of a lot of different genres, from swing & bebop to classic blues and jump. This shuffle highlights a few of his unique phrasing ideas as applied to a shuffle in Bb."
