BLUES TURNAROUNDS. Inside the blues. A compendium of patterns & phrases for guitar. 76 tracks. Dave Rubin and Rusty Zinn. CD TABLATURE

Series: Guitar Educational
Softcover with CD - TAB
Author: Dave Rubin
Author: Rusty Zinn

Written by blues expert Dave Rubin and Rusty Zinn, one of the finest young guitarists and singers on the contemporary blues scene, this book/CD pack provides the beginning to advanced blues guitarist with all of the essential turnarounds and so much more! The CD includes 76 demonstration tracks. 40 pages.


The art of The Turnarounds

W.e. Handy, known as the "Father of the Blues" due to his early efforts at promoting the form, published "Memphis Blues" in 1912, a song containing the first written solo, or "jass (zz)" break. A series of 12-bar verses with a 16-bar bridge, the last verse contains an end turnaround resolving to the I chord (see Fig. 1). It appears to be the first hard copy of the descending, diminished blues turnaround pattern (I-I7-Io-iv6-I) that, in the hands of Lonnie Johnson in the late twenties, and particularly Robert Johnson a decade later, would become the template for virtually all subsequent blues turnarounds.


The idea of ending a verse of music on the V (dominant) chord and resolving back to the I chord is suggested in twelve-measure, modal folk tunes from the mid-1500s in England. Music from this period did not have tonality (chord changes); however, the direction of the vocal line and musical accompaniment could be seen to imply changes. Roughly 100 years later music starts to appear with I-V-I implied changes in measures 11 and 12. It would take until the time of the Civil War in the 1860s and just after, however, for 12-bar, I-IV-V blues to take shape, and even longer for resolution to the V chord in measure 12 to become the norm.

Both W.e. Handy and Big Bill Broonzy, among others, have frequently cited "Joe Turner Blues" from the 1890s as the first recognized 12-bar blues. Indeed, it fits the format but does not include a verse or end turnaround. In fact, it would take Handy's "St. Louis Blues" (1914) to contain a i-II7-V-V7 turnaround (see Fig. 2) in the minor key "tango section" that begins, "St. Louis woman, with your diamond ring ... "

... not on the same level as him, then figure out what you need to do to strengthen those elements in your
playing. I hope you get the idea. The idea is to compare your playing to that of the greats and to try to get
your playing as close to that level as possible. Or, as one of my teachers told me, "set your sights high
and endeavor to reach them with integrity." If you do this you will be greatly rewarded.
4. Listen! You should Iisten to a wide variety of music. This kind of goes with what I mentioned in the
first point. There are on/y two types of music: good music and bad music. Music is music is music. The
longer I play as a musician and learn and Iisten to different styles of music, the more I am aware of the
similarities between different styles. Remember, there are only twelve notes in music. Twelve notes! What
makes each style different is the rhythm-not the notes. So, with this in mind I recommend that you Iisten
to a variety of music ali the time. Although I lave playing blues, blues-rock, R&B, and other roots
music, I enjoy listening to and learning from many styles of music. I have a varied collection of records,
tapes, and CDs that provide me with a lot of inspiration and musical ideas. I lave taking a melody I learned
from a classical piece, jazz tune, or a country tune and using it in one of my blues-rock solos. I encourage
you to do the same.
In closing I would Iike to share with you some of my thoughts and viewpoints on music and playing
the guitar that will hopefully give you some food far thought and increase your awareness. I always
encourage my students to think of themselves as musicians first and guitarists secondo You and I are
musicians whose main instrument and means of musical expression just happens to be the guitar.
Because of this, our main goal when we play should be to make good music. We should not be trying to
impress people with our technique or the latest hot licks we've just learned. The idea is to make good
music. What defines good music can be very subjective and differs from person to person. In spite of this,
there are some universal principles and characteristics that are common to good music. One characteristic
of good music is balance. It has the right proportions of melody, harmony, and rhythm. Good music
also has the right amounts of unity, variety, tension, and release. As you practice your soloing and record
yourself periodically Iisten for the right balance of unity and variety in your playing. As l've said earlier in
this book, it is okay to repeat musical ideas (as long as you don't overdo it). Repetition adds unity to
music, while developing your musical ideas adds variety to music. Aiso listen far tension and release in
your playing. If you have too much tension in your playing, your music will never have a sense of completion
or resolution. Too much release and your playing goes nowhere; it is emotionally flat. / have tried
to illustrate these concepts in the solos far this book. If you have learned the solos in this book well, then
you have already learned some good examples of how they work in music. Now ali you have to do is apply
that knowledge to the good music that you make. If your primary goal as a musician is to make good
music every time you play, then people will respond favorably to your music and you will be head and
shoulders above those who are not so driven. To be great at music, or anything else in life far that matter,
takes humility. Humility is teach-ability. You must be willing to learn far the rest of your Iife. Music is a
constant learning and growing processoYou never arrive at a certain piace or reach a level where you cannot
learn more. There is always something new to learn in music; there will always be room for improvement
in your playing. The longer I play and study music, the more I am impressed by what I do not know.
I find great joy in learning new things about music and playing the guitar daily. I hope it is the same far you.
Finally, I would Iike to thank you for purchasing this book/CD. I hope you got a lot aut of it and that it
has improved your playing and furthered your musical education. I really enjoy helping people learn to
play music on the guitar. My desire is for you to be the best player that you can be. So, keep on learning,
practicing, and playing. Or, to put it another way, keep on pickin' and a' grinnin'!
