Diminished Blues Workout Lesson 1 is a series of lessons to thoroughly teach you how to use the diminished scale effectively over dominant chords and diminished 7th chords. Instead of just talking about how to use the diminished scale we are actually applying it to a standard 12 bar blues and using this form to master it’s use and application. This is a great lesson series if you know your diminished scales but have always been shaky on where and when to use them.
In lesson 1, I demonstrate where in a D blues to use these scales and then show you how to construct them and think of them while you are improvising. The goal of this lesson series is for you to integrate these cool sounding scales and patterns into your existing improvisational vocabulary in a way that sounds authentic and convincing. Walk through this series with me and you will never be hesitant about where and how you can use the diminished scale again!
