Nic Clark Solo

This is from the Mile High Blues Society Jam at Ziggies in Denver last night. In this clip Nic does a good job of illustrating a couple of the soloing strategies we teach at our "Blues Jam 101" seminars. He starts out simple and repetitive, with mostly single notes low on the harp. Through the solo he builds tension by moving up the harp and playing more double stops and chords. He does some interesting things here.

Nic is playing a Mission 32-20 1x12 amp that Bruce Collins built for a good local player. He is using my 1959 Shure 440SL microphone and zero effects.

The jam was packed! Great music and great people. All jams should be like that.
