Description

This is Volume 1 of 4 in our “Blues Rock Masters Series – Modern & Classic”. This is in depth study & analysis of the playing styles of the greatest blues and blues rock guitarists of all time. Learn the techniques, tone, devices, scales, and styles of THE most epic guitar players of all time.
As guitar players we all have our influences or players that inspire us. Players that when we hear them play its just pure magic to our ears. They inspire us to pick up our guitars and play, and they inspire us to create. And we all pull from our influences and add them into our own playing style. We then put our own spin on what we learn and develop our own style. So as guitarists we are all made up of combinations of our influences. We are all truly amalgamates of our influences. And with this course you can pull from the best players ever! 
Whether you are a beginner or advanced player, following these lesson will bring your blues and rock playing to the next level – guaranteed! Players of all levels will be inspired by these lessons and you will be able to quickly add these techniques and devices to your own style.
Here in Volume 1 you will learn the styles of David Gilmour, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Michael Schenker. You will learn all about the gear, tones, licks, scales, devices, and playing styles and techniques of these four monster players. We also discuss their trademark tones and teach you how to get in the ballpark of their tones by using simple equipment, amps, and effects, that you probably already have at home. 
Then we teach you how to apply the techniques you are learning by playing over the included jam tracks. You get the same jam tracks that are utilized in the lessons, plus we throw in extra jam tracks in different keys and tempos so you have even more practice and application content. So you have the tools to practice and hone your playing skills to a sharp edge.
The lessons in this course and taught by Next Level Guitar instructors Dave Nassie and Ben Zinn. This course contains 13 video lessons totaling two and a quarter hours of video lessons, 30 jam tracks, and a 103-page detailed coinciding eBook. The eBook contains pages of written lessons, chord diagrams, jam track lessons, scale diagrams, music theory lessons, and much more. Its a great reference tool that you will find yourself utilizing throughout your guitar journey.
And learning is easy with our on-screen tablature. So you see all the licks and chords tabbed out on the screen. This makes it very easy to follow along. All rhythm and lead riffs and licks are broken down and explained and demonstrated at slow speed and regular speed. So you don’t have to keep hitting the rewind and pause buttons. Plus we break each section into digestible parts and we get you playing and rocking out in the fastest and most efficient manner.
