8-03-13: New Blues #3 in G (Take 1)

8-03-13: New Blues #3 in G (Take 1)

This is the third in a series of what is projected to be 24 solo blues in the “new” style, call, prosaically enough, 24┬áNew Blues. (The first one in C is here, the second in Em is here.) This one is VERY hard to play, thus the qualifier “Take 1”. These will eventually go on a separate site with the mirror set of 24 Old Blues. Together they add up to 48 blues, but the site is call 47Blues. You’ll understand when the site goes live. Until then…

(This is also the first post since updating to WordPress 3.6. This version of WordPress supports, among other things, native audio which means I don’t need to embed the tracks from Bandcamp. You still need to go there to actually buy the tracks.)

7-23-13: New Blues #4 in E Minor

Another track from the July 11 Tone Zone session. This is the second one from the aforementioned set of New Blues (there are eventually supposed to be 24 of them, one in each major an minor keys.) What makes them “new”? Well, I’m also writing a set of 24 Old Blues, so it’s only in the comparison between these two sets that you’ll notice the difference. I’ll be posting some of the old ones soon enough.
