PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

No guitars? No keyboards? No worry! This unit teaches students how to play 12-bar Blues on the iPad using the Garageband app. Students should already be familiar with the form, chord progression, and scale used in the 12-bar blues, as well as the history, cultural context, music and musicians of the Blues. In Part 1, students play and record the chords used in the 12-bar blues. In Part 2, they record lyrics over the chords. In Part 3, they improvise on the blues scale. Finally, their 12-bar blues is mixed and shared. Visuals included!

Some knowledge of the Garageband app ($4.99 in the App Store) is helpful.
