Blues etudes in all keys.
I am looking for blues etudes to help me work out basic blues in all keys. Do any of you know where I might find .pdf's of these?
Mintzner's Blues and Funk books are good. I read that his first book was to be at the intermediate level but was not, so he published the Easy book which may not be, LOL. Anyway, depends on your chop level but you may get something out of them.
If you can't play a complete transcription, there are licks and phrases you can lift and work on themselves, yourself.
Also, are you aware of the Lennie Niehaus series?
@kehaulani All good suggestions. The Niehaus looks interesting, but I'd have to transpose the etudes and I really want to spend that time playing. I have quite a few Aebersold albums including Nothing But Blues. I do not have #42. I also have all volumes of the Rich Matteson/Jack Peterson play along recordings that we used in class with the book that goes along with them, the Rich Matteson Flexibility and Improv Patterns book, and a large number of transcriptions of various artists.
What I am looking for is a book of good basic blues solos to use as practice etudes.
