    I have been struggling with mixing major and minor…until now! You cleared it up for me in less than the time it took to watch this entire video. OK, I was really close anyway, but I do get it now. It's funny how so many guitar players can't actually verbalize what they do to sound good playing blues, I think a lot of them just picked it up and it sounded good and never really tried to understand it. But thanks, you do a great job of getting it drilled into my head.

    i love this series!

  6. This is a great lesson Brian. I have the biggest smile on my face learning this. I've always played within the scale. Blending them is great fun.

  7. Great mini-series, thank you so much (But I noticed the lesson code name is a bit mixed up – on the video it says 312 but the title says 313)

  8. I call that lick played at 19:52 the "Captain Lee" lick because in just about every guitar video Lee Anderton plays in he uses this lick almost immediately when he plays by himself…

    Great lesson Brian!

  9. Love it. Thanks, Brian.

  10. the website has this part.but also a second part in the tabs and walkthrough but no lesson for the second part. Is this intentional?

  11. excellent Brian thank you.
