Blues Guitar Lessons

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

For lead guitarist, I teach you conventional style of rock blues (acoustic and electric) techniques and riffs from the blues pentatonic scale. I also teach a unique style of acoustic/ electric blues soloing using a type of drop D tuning. This is a SIMPLE style that any novice can learn, but the potential to create new blues shapes are limitless. The sound is pure raw Blues! You will also have opportunities to perform, record and produce your own CD (of you playing), accompanied by professional backing tracks (drums bass,and rhythm guitar) ...FREE as part of the package!
