Join Tricia Woods for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Beginning Blues Keyboard.
- There's nothing quite like the slow blues.…It's my personal favorite kind of music to play.…You can't play the slow blues without getting really…into it and expressing yourself.…And in the end, that's why we love playing music so much.…I hope you've enjoyed working through this video…and that it's given you some ideas that you can expand on.…You know, the best way to learn this music is…by listening to the blues men and women…who created such a rich musical heritage for us.…It's also important to play with other folks…as much as you can.…
Get together with your friends…or find a jam session where you can go and sit in.…Thanks for listening and keep on playing.…(blues music)…
