Supplemented by musicological and historical data, a musical analysis of the blues was conducted in the first person in order to derive notated pianistic improvisation resourcesin the form of a practice guide. The analysis involved two components: a non-positivistic (aural) analysis of blues recordings and a positivistic (structural) analysis of scores. The results generated six categories of blues resources, four of which were developed in this paper.

Thus, each resource chapter (4-7) contains 1) an aesthetic analysis, 2) a discussion of clinical implications, and 3)a practice guide.
