Learn a Country Lick Using Ringing Notes

Our new free lesson will teach you how to play a Cascading Country Guitar Lick. This original lick by Jody Worrell uses a series of ringing notes to create a textbook country sound. Jody will guide you through playing the lick with note by note instruction. You have several options when it comes to right hand technique. You can use just a pick, hybrid picking, or go with just fingers. After you learn the lick and get the tone you want, we’ll practice against the jam track to work on timing.

Can Learning Music Boost the Economy?


We’ve all heard it before—”Playing Music Makes You Smarter.” But with this country’s educational and economic problems, can music actually help to fix schools and ultimately, the financial crisis? Quite possibly. Joanne Lipman from the Wall Street Journal has written a great article on this matter. Here are some of the key points:

  • Music raises your IQ
  • Music training can reduce the academic gap between rich and poor districts
  • Music training does more than sports, theater or dance to improve key academic skills
  • Music can be an inexpensive early screening tool for reading disabilities
  • Music literally expands your brain

Learn to Play Like Albert King

Our Albert King Style Lick is a new free lesson that will teach you a guitar lick in the style of a blues legend. Albert’s bends were his calling card and we’ll tackle a few in the middle of this fun lick. Jody will walk you note by note through the lick explaining the techniques that will help you develop the right tone. Once you have the lick down, practice along with Jody and the backing track to work on your timing.
