In this course, you will learn the concepts and techniques for playing soulful slow blues lead guitar. How to find notes all over the fretboard, playing the 12 bar blues, minor pentatonic scales, blues nuances, and more are covered. This course is not for someone who has never played guitar before but for the student who has maybe 6 months to a year of playing behind them.

To take this course you will need to be able to play and strum some open chords, play a simple major barre chord, and be able to play the first position minor pentatonic scale.

  • The Picking Hand – How to use your Picking hand for more accuracy, control, and power.
  • The Fretting Hand – How to position your hand, fingers, and thumb to maximize accuracy, tone, and power.
  • Muting – How to stop all of those unwanted strings from ringing out when you’re trying to play solos.
  • Vibrato – How to get more power for that SRV and Hendrix sound without killing your wrists and fingers.

If you learn how to incorporate these techniques into your playing you will have a much stronger technique for doing that SRV/Hendrix vibrato style, picking, strumming, or any type of playing really.

Playing in this way will also help if you struggle with any kind of pain in your arms, wrists, and fingers. I know this because I have had lots of issues in these areas for over a decade but now I have zero pain there. It’s been a miraculous discovery brought on by a nearly life-threatening event I had a year ago.
