Streamwood, IL, November 25, 2013 - This was the question composer Michael Droste wanted to
answer. Through his Play The Blues series at PlayTheBlues.com Droste wanted to teach everyone
playing a musical instrument how to play the blues. He released 16 different recordings to teach
everyone, on every instrument, the blues changes, and give the pros and beginners many
choruses to learn how to solo in the blues.

"For this particular release," he stated, "why not combine disco and the blues together and see
how it sounds?" Pleased with the results, the recordings are now available for everyone at every
online music retailer.

As fan of the Chicago blues scene, he continues to create recordings that combines the blues with
jazz, hip hop, techno, and rock. "One should not be limited to one style of music with the blues,"
he said. "The blues changes slot well into other genres," Droste stated.

As the Trumpet is his main instrument, he could understand the frustration of trying to find some
blues recordings for soloing in a key for his instrument. "I wanted the Oboe, Clarinet, Trombone,
Piano, Alto Tenor and Soprano Sax players each to have their own dedicated recordings," he
stated. "The only solution was to release 16 different recordings, one for each instrument, and
provide all levels of musicians with many different musical keys and styles," Droste said. That
goal is still being realized with hundreds of recordings released at PlayTheBlues.com

Not wanting to short change any instrument the series is made accessible to all with versions for
the guitar, tuba, wood recorders, and drum set. Each recording also includes a mini blues tutorial
at the end of the blues choruses. There are instructions at PlayTheBlues.com of some 'magic
notes' that will sound good with each recording, and their specific instrument and key.
