Class 1 - Comping a Dominant Blues in Any Key

In this short class (three 6 minute vids!), I'll show you:

  • one easy chord grip and a four-to-the-floor strumming pattern to play the essential changes of a 12 bar dominant blues in G.
  • a second grip and a swing strumming pattern to play the basic changes of a dominant blues in any key.
  • how to add a VI7-II7-V7-I7 turnaround to a dominant blues.


This class is perfect for beginners and advancing students can go further by enrolling in the follow up courses that teach other Freddie Green grips including minor 7th and major 6th.

Freddie Green was the long-time rhythm guitarist of the Count Basie Orchestra and pioneered a simple, but effective set of chord grips and strumming pattern that helped make the Basie's rhythm section the envy of every band of that era.

Got a chance to sit in on a jazz gig and as a player of all other styles but then this is the ideal crash course for me and the instructor is very thorough and helpful.

Scott Perry is the first-born Leo son of a tough Irish mother and a stubborn Polish father. Leaning in, leaping, and causing a ruckus come naturally to him as does his knack for leading others to join the fun.

In the lesson studio, from the stage and on the web, Scott demonstrates the relevance of the blues and the value of storytelling. Some say he’s pretty good at it, but Scott’s still learning and leveling up. He’s been at it for a long time, but Scott Perry is just getting started…!
