We’ve released a free ebook called “Blues Guitar Lessons” that is now available in the iTunes store. The book features five of our lessons by Jody Worrell (Stevie Ray Vaughan Style Lick, Eric Clapton Style Lick) and Peter Vogl (Am Pentatonic Licks, F Blues Licks, E Minor & Major Pentatonic Licks).
Each lesson includes written instruction, HD video, and guitar tab. The teachers will take you step by step through the material making sure you understand how to play it properly. This is a great way to move from just learning guitar scales to creating your own solos.
Downloading the ebook to your iPad or iPhone makes it easy for you to practice anywhere. You don’t have to worry about wi-fi access, data charges, or lugging around a book or dvd. It’s great for practicing your guitar playing outside or on vacation.
Goodsell’s Super 17 guitar amp has gained a lot of acclaim over the years. Now there is an overdrive pedal to add to the experience. In this video, Richard Goodsell will start by explaining some of the core features of the Overdrive Pedal. Then it’s Jody’s turn to show you the pedal in action. You’ll be able to hear before (bypassed) and after (with the pedal) playing sections using both a Les Paul and a Strat. This should hopefully give you a feel for the clean boost and crunchy type tones you can create with the pedal. Learn more on the Goodsell Overdrive Pedal product page.
Our Jimi Hendrix Lesson Package features six downloadable video lessons that will teach you how to solo like this guitar legend. In addition to his all out rockers, Jimi also had a knack for bringing energetic solos to a ballad setting. Little Wing, Hey Joe, and The Wind Cries Mary are absolute classics and a thrill to play.
In this set of lessons, Jody will touch on Jimi’s approach to playing ballads as well as some techniques that Hendrix used throughout every playing situation. Using licks and solos, Jody will show you the bends, hammer ons, double stops, and note choices that Jimi used to create his distinctive tone. In each lesson, you’ll be able to use the step by step video instruction, included tabs, and included jam tracks to practice and really master this material. You can watch a demo of the whole package below.
Jody Worrell has a new free guitar lesson that will teach you how to play an easy electric guitar lick. This is a great lesson for beginner to intermediate guitarists who are just starting to play lead. Jody will take you note by note through playing the lick correctly. There are also options to add pull offs, slides, and vibrato to create a cooler sound. You can add these techniques as you become more comfortable. After teaching you how to play the lick, Jody will demonstrate it along with a jam track.
Eric Clapton Style Lick is our newest free lesson by Jody Worrell. You will learn a guitar riff that features some interesting bends. Specifically, we’ll look at a technique where you play a whole step bend and then kill the note by placing your pick on the string. Then move down a fret on the same string and play a half step bend. After teaching you the lick with step by step instruction, Jody will demonstrate the lick and then leave a space for your to play it. We’ll do this several times over a rhythm track in D. Get the tab!
