St. James Infirmary Blues

Using D Minor Blues Scale over Bb7

This is an excerpt from a longer series of lesson on the tune St. James Infirmary Blues. I teach you how to play the chords, and several approaches for improvisation – scales and arpeggios and triad approaches. Basically, how to approach soloing on a minor blues. You will learn the importance of chord tones! Here is a lesson on using Dm Blues Scale over the Bb7 chord.

St. James Infirmary Blues

Tab, backing track and in-depth analysis of the melody available to all members.

I went down to St. James Infirmary,
Saw my baby there,
Stretched out on a long white table,
So cold, so sweet, so bare.
Let her go, let her go, God bless her,
Wherever she may be,
She can look this wide world over,
But she'll never find a sweet man like me.

Melody with Louis Armstrong Phrasing

Now I understand

Jun 10, 2014 by Tony T

Now I understand why you do not post tab all the time, I picked this lesson up by ear. And its awesome! your so cool man.

Slow 60 Blues

Feb 24, 2014 by Sonny Marcyan

I love all your lessons and this slow 60 blues is a great package from rhythm to solos that helps me to put it all together in better understanding the blues. I prefer purchasing the package as I have little time to learn as I work so much so joining the membership is not so useful for me as much as the downloads are.

Thank You for all your dedicated work and lessons,

P.S. Would like to learn that turnaround in the SRV style triplet chord tone lick.

Feb 15, 2014 by Eddie Bray

Hey Robert, Nice lick! Reminds me of a lick Scott Henderson uses; that is, starting off by stacking 5ths. Can't wait to sit down and get it under my fingers.

Excellent lesson Robert, and I agree, it definitely has a Gary Moore sound to it.
Please do more of this kind of thing.
Thank You

Traveling Country lick in 'D'

Jan 09, 2014 by Alan Griffiths

Wow, this is great Robert - you are very talented. Say - do I need to know my scales to play this successfully?
Alan G.

Response: No, but it never hurts to know your scales! In fact, this lick can HELP you learn your scales. I certainly hope so.
