Once again, our friends at TrueFire have provided unique lesson content for Jazz Guitar Today – thanks again! The ‘Sam Jam’ videos below are from a complete lesson series – Robben Ford’s Urban Blues Revolution. In the videos, Robben will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way.  

”I’m going to play rhythm over a track called ‘Sam’s Jam’, which is a surf beat. A different kind of feel in the blues. After we’ve looked at some rhythm ideas for ‘Sam’s Jam’, I’m going to improvise over this 12-bar progression.” Robben Ford
