Robben Ford – Blues Revolution
Guitar players are blessed with hundreds of truly gifted masters to study and emulate, but there’s only a handful whose voice on the instrument is so innovative, so distinctive, and so signature that it only takes a few notes to recognize its source — please join us in welcoming Robben Ford to the TrueFire family.
Embraced by listeners and players alike, Robben’s innovative and soulful musicality triggered a revolution in electric blues guitar styling. In this 6-hour, interactive video Blues Revolution course, Robben steps you through his Chicago blues influences, chord and scale vocabulary, rhythm guitar techniques, improvisational approaches and harmonic insight for crafting the fresh, contemporary lines that comprise his signature sound — it’s all here!
Robben’s previous books and videos cover a lot of ground but never before has he prepared such a comprehensive curriculum as the one he presents in this Blues Revolution interactive learning experience. At last, ALL of the dots are seamlessly connected.
Robben organized Blues Revolution into a series of six sections, each covering essential disciplines and techniques:
Section 1: Fundamentals
Robben presents essential principles for developing your individual musicality; crafting a melodic vocal styling; and learning how to listen, practice, play, emulate and free yourself of patterns.
Section 2: Chicago Blues
Robben takes you back to his Chicago and country blues roots with demonstrations of rhythm and lead work inspired by the School of Little Walter and other early influences.
Section 3: Chords & Comping
Chord vocabulary, rhythm/comping techniques, movement and themes are some of Robben’s favorite subjects and he leaves no stones unturned in this illuminating series of demonstrations and performances.
Section 4: Scales & Applications
Harmonic perspective and soloing applications for triads, modes, pentatonic, diminished and altered scales are covered in great detail over this series of lessons. In short, what we’ve all been yearning for all these years!
Section 5: Soloing & Improvisation
Playing over changes, crafting solos, phrasing, vibrato and key techniques are focused on and presented in bite-sized, very accessible demonstrations and performances. It all comes together here.
Section 6: Performances
Robben puts all of the above to work in a series of illustrative performances, which are featured in each of the sections. YES, it’s all transcribed, tabbed and you get the rhythm tracks to practice over.

“This is the best blues course on the web. I don’t think there’s ever been anything better than this since the beginning of the internet! It’s that good! Robben constantly inspires you to go further and try harder. He’ll make you love the blues even if you’re taking this course just to expand your knowledge. The jam tracks are great as is the PDF book that comes with the course. The PDF contains everything that Robben plays so don’t worry if you see him play anything advanced. My advice is to start working from part 1 up to part 7 step by step without rushing through anything. I’ve been studying this course for months now and lot’s of times I went back to apply the new stuff to the old. Boy, there’s so much in this Course for the cost. Thank for such a well structured, throughout, informative and inspiring Course. One of the best lessons I’ve had in my guitar playing life.” – Constantine Jajas, TrueFire Student
“It is a true pleasure to review this course, Robben Ford’s Blues Revolution. In a very relaxed way the teacher displays his skills theoretically and practically for you to copy or to emulate into your own style. A lot to digest, I have been returning to this course over and over again and there seems to be something new to pick up each time. Maybe I should mention that I have been playing the blues for over 30 years and I seemed to be hopelessly stuck in old patterns. This is the cure! New life into the blues, new structure.” – Urban Axell, TrueFire Student
“This is the best course you have offered so far. Robben does not talk down to anyone and at the same time does not profess to any superiority either. His playing is magnificent. Even though I don’t agree with some of his terminology such as calling an A7b13 chord an Ab13, he really demystifies a lot of puzzling concepts of guitar playing. His transitioning from pick to fingers is flawless. I am particularly grateful for his treatment of the ubiquitous melodic minor scale. Trying to deal with ascale that is a semitone above the 5th degree is way too much to think about while playing, but treating the scale as a half diminished/half whole tone scale brings it out of the fog and into the sunlight. Best money I ever spent on lessons.” – Rick Henderson, TrueFire Student
