Blues Etude No. 1 (Scales and Arpeggios)

Blues Etude: Practicing scales, ornaments, arpeggios, and enclosures over C Blues.

Today’s challenge is very similar to the one we had yesterday, but this time we will integrate our jazz lines over a C jazz blues chord progression.

Level 1, 2, 3:
Everyone gets the same challenge today. The difference is in your left-hand accompaniment. As a beginner, play the left hand as simple as possible. As an intermediate player, keep a steady groove (charleston rhythm is your friend here). As an advanced player, be creative with your left hand. Make both hands equally important, equally musical.
