Corey Congilio’s Hip Blues: Outside Lines — TrueFire — Free download

Learn How to Play Outside the Box for Richer Harmonic Vocabulary

Like most blues guitar players, you are probably quite content to stay inside the box, but there are times when you probably find yourself searching ‘outside the box’ for a richer harmonic vocabulary that some of your favorite players use in their own improvisations.

In this Outside Lines edition of Hip Blues, Corey Congilio will share some of his vocabulary and improvisational approaches with you as you play your way through 10 “outside” blues soloing performance studies. Each of these studies highlights a particular approach or concept that you can easily put to use right away in your own blues soloing.

You’ll work on dominant seven arpeggios for two five ones, incorporating chromatic lines, and diminished applications. Corey talks about minor seven flat five over blues progressions and vamps, and you’ll focus on the “elusive” melodic minor scale and the array of outside tones it can create in your solos.

Corey first explains the approach and then you’ll apply it over a backing track for demonstration purposes. Corey breaks down all of soloing performance studies for you in detail as well.

You’ll exercise dominant seven arpeggios and two five ones in both a shuffle in A and a straight feel in D. There’s a modern shuffle in E where we’ll incorporate chromatic lines. You’ll dip our toe into diminished with a laid back swing groove in the key of C and step outside with Minor 7 flat five arpeggios over a dominant seven using a funky one-chord vamp. There’s a rumba feel where Corey highlights easily digestible melodic minor sounds. And, in your final set of studies, you’ll put it all together over two tracks, and pack it with outside applications for everything you’ve learned.

Corey will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the performance studies. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson. You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.
