Totally Guitars Weekly Update November 11, 2022
November 11, 2022
A suggestion came up recently that I should do a complete lesson on Death Don’t Have No Mercy by Rev. Gary Davis. This seemed like a great idea, especially considering I was sure I had already done one. Lo and behold, I was mistaken. I will remedy that as soon as possible and am very sorry that it never happened. It did give me a place to start today’s update with some improvising around the progression, which I picked up again at the end.
In between I had a little, big news about some changes here at Totally Guitars, as well as a mini-lesson on Pentatonic Scales & Patterns. These scales and their applications had been a popular subject recently with my students and I took this opportunity to go over them briefly. I also showed a little bit of the opening to Blue Sky by The Allman Brothers, as it is a great example of using the E Pentatonic Scale to create a catchy intro. If there is not enough info in the mini-lesson.
See you next week,
