Learning to play blues guitar has never been so simple, or so enjoyable. This step-by-step, video instruction course contains everything you’ll need to really learn the blues inside and out. These are the exact same lessons that thousands of students, many of them just like you, have used to learn how to play blues guitar. And most importantly, you’ll have fun and be on your way to playing the blues from the very first lesson.
Here are just some of the things Blues Guitar Unleashed 2.0 can do for you:
Discover how to solo effortlessly in any key, major or minor, anywhere on the guitar fretboard. No more getting lost or wondering what you’re “allowed” to play. That means no more “clinkers” while you wring every last drop of emotion out of your solos without thinking. You’ll be able to simply enjoy the looks on the faces of the other players as they admire your riffs.
Know when and how to play the major versus the minor blues sound. This one secret is the same thing that completely changed my own playing in a couple of hours. Once you learn this you will be able to think like your guitar heroes before you. Many times you can even just hear something they play, and you’ll know exactly how to play it… even without a guitar in your hands (I’ve seen it happen… often!)
You’ll learn how to know exactly what scales to use, in what key, and when, without any unnecessary theory. No dorians, mixolydians, or any other “Greekness” going on here (but I will tell you why don’t need those modes.) This is straight-to-the-point stuff you can start using on day 1.
How to easily and quickly execute all of the necessary guitar “tricks” like hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, and “tweedlies” (my personal favorite.) You have to be able to do these to get the real blues sounds. None of them are hard if you learn them right.
How blues chord progressions work using the 12 bar blues. With this lesson alone you could be creating your own songs within minutes, or you can use it to know what’s coming up in songs you’ve never played before. Imagine stepping up on an open jam and not worrying about what tune they call because you know you can nail it, no matter what.
You’ll learn how to setup your right and left hand fingerings to effortlessly bend the strings as far as you need to… and without all those extra “noises” when you are done with the bend (this is probably the most common question I get!) The answer is all in the right hand.
How to play literally hundreds of tried and true blues licks, in a variety of keys and styles. I walk you through them note by note, with an inset camera on my left hand so you can see exactly what I am doing as I explain it. Each one is broken down so it is easy enough to learn in one session. You could learn a new lick this afternoon and play it with your friends tonight.
You’ll learn how to construct a complete solo from start to finish. I think it’s so uncool to just throw a bunch of licks at you and say “have fun!” You’ve got to learn how to create phrases and make your guitar “talk.” The complete solo examples (there are 6 of them!) in Blues Guitar Unleashed will show you how it’s done, and more importantly how you can do it.
You’ll learn at least 14 different “must have” blues rhythms that you can use at any jam session. Many of these are taken from popular blues songs such as “I’m Tore Down,” “La Grange,” “Pride and Joy,” and others. Knowing these will give you the confidence to play anything you want.
You’ll develop your own ability to hear exactly what is being played on a recording. Actually, you’ll find that it’s easy when you know what that person is probably playing. People ask me all the time if I have perfect pitch because I listen to something once and can play it. In reality, it’s just because I know what to expect and you will too.
You’ll see how to use the blues scale not just for soloing, but also within your rhythm playing to keep a cool groove going and embellish the chords. Playing with a band will be effortless, and any band in town will be happy to have you aboard.
You’ll learn the most popular variations on the 12 bar blues, including how it applies to a minor blues. This allows you to hear more quickly what other players are doing, and also gives more options for writing your own songs.
You’ll get a logical and methodical system for learning blues guitar. The book and DVDs are arranged so that you can start right from Lesson 1, page 1, and go through to the end. Every lesson builds on the lessons before it. You can go at your own pace, and you’ll know you are making progress as you master each lesson.
You’ll learn not just how to play a lick, but how to make it a part of your own vocabulary. You’ll know how to use it in any solo, not just the one you learned it from. This is where so many courses fail, and so many students really suffer. You’ll be able to wrangle every ounce of emotion out of your guitar without having to learn an encyclopedia full of licks.
You’ll discover all about chord substitutions. Without a doubt this is one area that makes things a lot more fun. It’s really easy when you know the 3 chord families and how they are related. No one will believe you can play so many cool chords so effortlessly. (they work for solos too…)
You’ll learn all of the chord shapes and rhythm patterns you’ll ever need to know. You’ll be able to play 7th, 9th, 11th, 13th, major 7th, 7#9, and a slew of other great blues chords. No matter what chord comes up in a tune, you’ll know the best way to play it (and I assure you it is not what your chord book would have you play!)
Blues Guitar Unleashed comes in 2 flavors… the Physical Edition comes on 9 DVDs, 3CDs, and with the 121 page printed manual (spiral bound so it lays flat for you.)
