Playing with Building Blocks - Improvisation

Playing with Building Blocks by Brad Laird is a downloadable Quicktime lesson which teaches 8 useful and moveable licks which can be used to construct solos and while improvising on the mandolin. Brad teaches each lick and then shows you how to move them to other locations to fit the chord progression of the song. Three complete 12 bar solos are taught, each one progressively more complex, using only the 8 licks taught in the video. This lesson includes an MP3 practice track and a 6-page PDF file with the tab and standard notation. The PDF also includes a Bonus Solo illustrating how Salty Dog can be played using these licks.
