This blues instructional program bridges the gap between slow blues and rock and roll. A huge part of my style is rooted firmly in early, bluesy rock and roll. In the early days of rock and roll, the guitar player was pulling double duty on guitar, playing both rhythm and lead guitar. Prior to the British invasion, you would seldom see two guitar players in a blues or rock and roll combo.
In this program, you’ll learn how to use the guitar as the lead instrument. You’ll learn lead and rhythm guitar and how to combine the two through 50 individual lessons and 17 ALL NEW full length backing tracks. We’ll be learning rhythm and solos that are right for the part and allow the guitar to breathe. If you’re looking for another blues lesson that milks the blues boxes, you’ll have to look elsewhere. If you’re tired of playing the same old grooves and scales that leave you scratching your head, this package will have you making music in no time. Learning to play the guitar is work, but it has to be fun as well. If it isn’t fun, you’ll quickly lose interest.
99.9% of blues songs are in the I/IV/V chord progression. In keeping with that tradition, all but a couple of the selections here are I/IV/V chord progressions. You’ll get a bit of Chicago, Texas, Memphis, boogie woogie, shuffles – all the good stuff. We’ll stick to major, 7th and 9th chords. Take a look at the preview below for a glimpse at this package and how much variety it includes. Keep in mind this is only a small taste of what’s in store. You won’t find a package anywhere that includes this much variety at any price.
If you’ve been under-whelmed by the quality and variety of backing tracks you’re received from other instructors, you’re in for a real treat. You’ll get a wide variety of drum beats in addition to some blues and boogie woogie piano. All tracks are mastered using Izotope 5 Advanced Mastering Software, giving these backing tracks the punch and clarity of commercial recordings.
Last but certainly not least, each lesson includes full screen shots of the picking hand. I’ve always maintained that the picking hand is more important to the way a part is played than the fretting hand. Sure, the notes need to be fretted correctly, but the sound comes from the picking hand. Why treat it as if it were secondary? Take a look at the free lesson below with guitar in hand. If you can learn using this clear and concise method, you’ll nail this program – guaranteed!
