Interactive Video Masterclass for Blues Guitar Improvisation
Everybody has a personal story to tell when improvising. A compelling solo conveys your feelings and ideas just like telling a story with a beginning, a middle, and an end. One of the best blues guitar storytellers of his generation, Josh Smith is back with his second TrueFire course to guide you through his process for developing guitar solos and help you create a system for crafting your own.

“I always have a ‘roadmap’ in mind when building a solo — technique, vocabulary, influences, emotion, timing… these all serve as guideposts to help me tell my story when improvising. I’ve found a multitude of ways to sharpen all of these tools and I’m excited to share them with you here in this course. My goal has always been to make every solo an honest reflection of what I’m thinking and feeling while I’m playing. These ‘roadmaps’ will help you tell your story!”

At 12 years old, Josh Smith was already playing out at blues jams in South Florida. At 14, he was the lead guitarist in The Rhino Cats, the house band at Club M sitting in with the likes of Jimmy Thackery, Tinsley Ellis, Kenny Neal, Lucky Peterson, Matt “Guitar” Murphy, Johnny “Clyde” Copeland, Double Trouble, and other top artists playing the venue. Today, Josh “continues to forge his legacy as one of the most vibrant, versatile, and sought-after players in all of contemporary blues.”

Josh has organized this course into two sections. In the first section, you’ll cover the individual dots on the improvisational roadmap – the elements that make up a great solo – topics like building a vocabulary, phrasing, time, dynamics, technique and playing with conviction and emotion. Then in the second section, you’ll play your way through a series of six full-length soloing studies across a variety of keys and feels.

Everything is tabbed and notated and you’ll be able to sync the tab and notation to the video using TrueFire’s learning tools. You can also loop or slow down any of the videos so you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included so you can work with them on your own.

Be sure to also check out Josh Smith’s first interactive video masterclass here on TrueFire, Blue Highways, which is currently one of our highest-rated courses of all-time!
