New “Salty Dog Blues” Teaching Video

I just updated my teaching school website with “Salty Dog Blues.”

Here is the link:


In this video I go over the melody to “Salty Dog Blues” as well as the chord positions.  This includes a pdf of the TAB, a slow video walk through of the song with onscreen TAB as well.  Lastly, I teach how to put a simple D pattern into the song, creating a variation.

This is a great song to learn what are called the Circle of Fifths chord changes, chord movements in fourths/fifths.  I use this as a vehicle to teach my students improvisation via plugging in licks.
