We’ll look at one of three songs: Sweet Home Chicago (with intro and turnaround). Hoochie Coochie Man (classic riff) and Stormy Monday. It’s important to emphasise that a lot of the skills learned can be transferred to other songs. One area of theory will be defining what the major and minor pentatonic scales are and how they can be mixed.
Number of lessons:
Two, each 75 mins long.
Note: these are live, online, interactive group sessions.
The bulk of each lesson is the actual teaching (with some questions along the way) and we dedicate the end slot to a formal Q&A. With the lessons being online, and assuming you are mostly on mute, you can play along with our tutor or just practise without interfering with anyone else.
What technology do you need?
If you’ve watched the likes of Youtube videos and been on a Skype/internet call then you’re totally eqipped to join a lesson. Laptop and tablets are best (bigger screen size) but phones are fine as well. If you only have speakers on your computer/phone/tablet then you can still watch and listen to the lessons. Having microphones and/or camera means you can be more interactive and even play a role in the lesson by having a one-on-one coaching slot during the lesson.
The real work always takes place after a course and so we provide a comprehensive set of materials for home practice; these can include: TABs, backing tracks and videos of examples/exercises used during the lesson. Over and above learning the songs our intention is to give you the tools to self-improve.
Average-and-above players should be fine for this course (check our Player levels and Course suitability guide). There’s something for everyone in all our courses and the follow-on materials should really help. Acoustic and electric guitar players are welcome; bassists are similarly welcome but should contact us beforehand.
