Blues Lessons, Anyone?
Well, I’m now a little over halfway through my current UK/European tour with Brit Floyd. I’m writing this blog from backstage at the O2 Arena in Dublin, since I’m due on stage in 20 minutes.
I just thought I would take this opportunity to announce yet another great series of video lessons available in our Intermediate section. This time it’s great news for blues fans, since we’ve just uploaded Blues Guitar Vol 1.
This collection of lessons is a MUST for fans of both classic and modern Blues.
In this, the first volume of FretHub’s new Blues Guitar series, Bobby takes you through the many variations of the classic Blues Shuffle groove, teaching you how to solo authentically in a blues jam environment as well as playing some tasteful rhythm guitar parts.
There’s a great 48-bar solo to learn, featuring many essential blues licks and techniques, plus some valuable restriction and phrasing exercises, enabling you to build up your soloing vocabulary using just a small area of the neck.
You’ll also learn how to build solos using a more lyrical approach, as well as some great ideas for using chord tones in your lead breaks. This is a comprehensive, 15 part video lesson series not to be missed.
As I mentioned in our last blog, it’s been a busy few months at FretHub HQ, since we’ve added lots of great new lesson content to the site. If you haven’t already watched our latest offerings, you’ll find them in the Intermediate section of our Lessons page. Check out our Electric Slide Guitar series; our in depth study of String Bending & Vibrato and Nick’s fantastic Funk Rhythm Guitar tutorials.
As always, both Nick and myself would like to take this opportunity to extend a very warm welcome to all our new members and also to thank our long-time, loyal FretHubbers for their continuing support. Don’t forget, in addition to FretHub’s homepage, you can also follow us on Twitter and ‘Like’ our Facebook page.
Okay, I’d better sign off now, since I’ve just had the 5 minute call. It’s almost showtime…
Have a great week and thanks, once again, for continuing to learn guitar online with FretHub.
All the best,
Bobby and Nick
