In the previous lesson, I introduced you to the 12-bar blues and I showed you how with the 15-Minute Play-to-Learn Method you can practice very specific techniques to break out of stiff, robotic ukulele playing and play with feeling and style!
We’re going to build on the last lesson, so you’ll want to make sure you’ve watched the previous lesson to get the most out of this lesson.
Today we prepare to solo by learning the blues scale.
You’re going to learn things like:
- How to play the C blues scale in first position
- Which fingers to use to play the scale pattern
- A fun exercise played over the 12-bar blues progression
Be sure to watch this video and practice because in the next video we’ll be taking what you learned and playing your first blues lick!
Students on the early-bird waitlist for the upcoming Blues Tricks course will be the first to know when this video is live.
Grab the Downloadable MP3 Backing Track
The best way to start practicing this scale is over the 12-bar blues progression, so I’ve prepared an MP3 backing track of me playing the 12-bar blues for you to practice the scale pattern and exercise I taught you in this video.

How to Get Early Access to Blues Tricks and Guarantee Your Spot
Unfortunately I can only work with a handful of students at a time. Unlike some of my other courses, I limit Blues Tricks registration to provide the best support and experience for my students. Some of my past programs have sold out in as less than a day.
When enrollment opens, you need to sign up as soon as you see it, because spots tend to sell out very fast. One reason I’ve created an early-bird waitlist is so you can get access before the public. But to secure your spot you need to act immediately when you get an email from me.
Here’s how to make sure you get in:
- Open your email inbox on Monday, June 7, 2020 at 1:00 PM eastern timezone
- Refresh your inbox until you get an email from me
- Open the email and click on the secret early-bird registration link inside the email to join the class
- Secure your spot in the class immediately
It’s likely there will be a rush to the registration page on Monday since there are so many people on the early-bird waiting list. Show up on time on Monday and follow the instructions above to make sure you get a spot.
Registration for Blues Tricks is opening soon. Please enter your information below to be added to the early-bird waitlist and you’ll be the first to know when we open enrollment.
“Brett is a wonderful teacher who is very relaxed when he teaches and plays, which makes me relaxed when I play. He explains his lessons very well and the progression of his lesson plan makes total sense.”
