Can someone tell me if playing blues scales and riffs are a tried and tested base for good learning. I'm playing three - four months now and doing a fair bit of theory and my teacher is putting me over some 'full' blues scales and riffs. He said if I can master these styles I will be able to play anything. I don't doubt him at all as he is a fantasic teacher/player but I do find it tough getting it together. Are there any good blues piano sites that I could look at and perhaps listen to it closely. I am not that familiar with a lot of blues.
