Blues Violin

by Marty Laster

This is an excerpt from my book, Getting into Blues Violin, which should be released (by MelBay) in February 2007. It is a comprehensive workshop in improvisation, which moves gradually from the blues into its influence on swing, bluegrass, cajun and Gypsy styles. An accompanying CD follows the book closely and also contains snippets of blues solos of the great violinists,past and present.

This excerpt is from the beginning of the book (which is 96 pages long). It deals with the minor pentatonic scale- before the blues scale is introduced.
