Taking you from picking the guitar up for the first time to playing cool "Electric Blues/Rock Lead Guitar". This course is the perfect next step after my “Electric Blues Beginner Course For Rhythm " or as a stand alone course for the beginning "Electric Blues Lead Guitar Player".
All the must have techniques and knowledge needed are covered in depth and thoroughly explained but the course moves you forward towards your goal efficiently so you wont get bored or bogged down by endless pointless exercises.
The art of Electric Blues/Rock Lead playing is studied in detail using all the must have techniques such as vibrato, bends, slides, hammer on and pull offs . You will also learn how to inject the emotion and feel of the blues into your playing, good blues needs to be felt as well as heard.
With this in mind pattern1 with the attached BB King box will be the only scale shapes used in this course allowing you to concentrate on playing authentic blues to a high standard and not just running through numerous scale patterns. That comes in future courses.
You will be shown how to improvise your own solos and will soon have the ability, knowledge and confidence to make up solos on the cuff and be able to attend Jam nights and be up to "Band Performance" levels.
Specially written solos in various styles of blues in 2 different keys are included and come with full backing tracks for you to play the pieces to or improvise your own ideas over.
My "Electric Blues/Rock Guitar Courses" are a large and extensive look at electric blues/rock guitar and has been split into various parts, all parts work together or can be used as stand alone units to assist you in different aspects of the your playing.
This course is the perfect place to start your "Electric Blues/Rock Guitar Lead Playing" journey and will have you playing cool blues flavoured lead guitar in no time at all (as long as you practice).
I hope you enjoy it.

I have been playing guitar for 30 years and have been a professional full time musician and teacher for the past 20 years, working from my home and in private colleges.
My main passion has always been blues-rock music and i have been playing in bands of this style for the past 25 years, my many hundreds of gigs range from small club and pub type venues to large open air music and biker festivals performing to thousands both home and abroad.
I am a registered Guitar Tutor with the RGT in England and have put many of my students through the London College of Music electric guitar grades and have a 100% pass rate.
I am still passionate about playing and teaching blues rock guitar and have put together a web site (see link) for anyone interested in taking a look.
