Compliments and builds on concepts learned in Funk Improvisation but in another key.
Having already completed the Funk Improvisation course, I felt at home exploring the soloing riffs and grooves in Funky Blues Soloing 1, and much more prepared to create my own soloing lines using the RH blues scale with the LH funk grooves. It was rewarding and fun.
