The Bloke finds its inspiration in both classic British 70s and 80s heads plus late 60s American tube bass amps.

Pittsboro, NC (Jan. 16, 2012) -- Carr Amps announces the Bloke Amp. The Bloke finds its inspiration in both classic British '70s and '80s heads plus late '60s American tube bass amps.  Carr Amps meld raw brashness with an incredibly muscular direct driver output section.  Bloke overdrive is thick, articulate, and with exceptionally solid speaker control.  Massive filter capacitors in all power supply stages further add to the low punch.  Foot switchable Lead mode increases sustain and odd order harmonic drive.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
