Robben Ford style blues in C

by Emir_Hot | 16 October 2012

Robben Ford is one of my favorite modern blues players. His phrasing is really something that inspired me over the years.

This lick is actually a modified and extended lick from his book "Blues for Guitar" which is a great resource if you want to dig into this style.

The lick is in the key of C. Almost everything played is in C major pentatonic and, at some moments, F major pentatonic with some added b5 notes for a bluesy feel.

Pay attention on the vibrato. This is not a vibrato you usually see in rock style. The left hand thumb is not touching the neck when vibrating. I've seen that Eric Clapton uses this approach a lot. The feel and the sound of this kind of vibrato is really different and interesting.

There are a few notes which I pluck with the right hand (m and a) fingers so make sure you don't miss that - see tab.

I left 2 jam tracks in 90 and 60bpm so you can play along. Jam tracks are not full 12 bar blues. You only have I and IV chord (C and F) in the loop - no V chord.

 

I hope you'll have fun playing this one.
