David Mead Twelve Bar Blues

By Leafcutter Studios Ltd

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Do you want to become a better blues player? The David Mead Twelve Bar Blues app will help you to understand the secrets of playing great Twelve Bar Blues.

One of the biggest myths in learning blues guitar is that the minor pentatonic scale is your one size fits all solution for playing amazing solos.

It isn’t. There’s a bit more to it than that…

The David Mead Twelve Bar Blues app teaches you the secrets you need to unlock your blues playing potential. In a simple and easy to follow way David reveals the fundamental reasons why some solos sound great and others don't. By understanding what to play and when to play it you can transform your blues playing to make your solos sound like the real thing.

In the app David explains the fundamental workings of the twelve bar progression and the key concepts you need to understand for your soloing to 'sound right'.

There are fifty blues licks for you to practise playing the right notes in the right places. Each lick is based around the fifth fret A pentatonic minor shape and includes:

- Full tab and notation for the lick.
- Accompanying text where David explains why the lick works in the twelve bar progression and how to get the most out of it.
- Recorded audio of David playing the lick over a 12 bar backing track, with follow along tab and animated fretboard.
- Full tab player to replay the lick at your choice of tempo to help you learn more effectively.

In addition you can fire up the backing track and play along yourself. The app will help guide you with onscreen fretboard diagrams showing you the key target notes within the fifth fret pentatonic shape for each bar.

Take your blues playing to the next level with the David Mead Twelve Bar Blues app for iPad!
