This mornings session began with a recap of yesterdays final session on the Mixolydian mode and the chords built from the scale – Dom7 through Dom13.
We started to learn a simple blues riff using both riffs and call and response licks, which will carry us in to session #2 later this morning.
We looked at octave shapes to locate and unlock the notes on the fret board, which was a perfect link to the ‘CAGED’ chord shapes and Mixolydian mode work done previously.
We also completed the blues riff and the class performed it for video (below).

Sessions #3 & #4
During the afternoon sessions the students booked themselves in for a 30 minute one to one lesson with Richard, focusing on specific areas of learning unique to each individual student. The remainder of the group had a collective jam and rehearsed their morning blues tunes – Blues riff #1 and blues in A.
