    I've been posting a few blues clips over the past week with straight ahead
    blues wailing. Now here's a clip on my Fender Strat that sounds a bit
    different because I have played the blues with a jazz feel on it. It's a
    kind of hybrid style between mainstream blues and jazz. You'll see a few
    scales come by that are not normally played by blues players, such as the
    melodic minor, diminished etc. Also the key is kind of unusual. It's in Eb,
    which is a common key to be playing in for jazz players.

    Hope you like it, it's a bit different. It's a kind of coming together of my
    blues and jazz backgrounds ...

    Hi Dick,

    You don't know me, but I've listened to quite a bit of your stuff. You are a fine player but I must say this marriage between the jazz and the blues style you do gives you a unique voice that is A: very much your own vibe and B: a very nice classy approach to blues that is fresh and exciting. Nice job all around. Thanks for sharing.
    Tim

    Nice. Always fun to watch your video. Keep them coming.

    I like the vintage sunburst colour of the strat.

    Dick! That was awesome! What amp are you playing through and what did you have the reverb set at ?
     
  12. awesome! I loved it. That run you did at about :35 was very interesting.

    Not only did it have good content but you also did a great job of varying your picking strength... making it quiet when it needed to be etc.

    good vid

    Thanks. I did not use an amp. I used an amp modeller, preset "Surf". Whatever that is ... but it has tons of reverb.
