Blues Accelerator - 21 Days to Blues Guitar Mastery
What you'll learn

- An electric guitar, ideally with an amplifier
The aim of Blues Accelerator is to take someone with little formal knowledge about blues guitar playing, and turn them into a confident blues player. The ultimate goal that we're headed towards is the ability to play over the 12 bar blues, which is the bread and butter of any blues musician. If you want to sit in with the real players, you need to have a rock solid grasp on playing over the 12 bar blues....and by the final lesson of this VOl. I, you will have mastered soloing over the 12 bar blues.
Depending on your skill level coming into this course, you might find the first lesson a bit easy. Nevertheless, please follow along. Each lesson in the course builds upon the lesson that precedes it. Skip a lesson, and you risk missing an important aspect of blues soloing.
As the title suggests, you can finish the course in 21 days.
Who this course is for:
- Beginners and Intermediate players
I've been a professional teacher my entire adult life. I have taught thousands of people over the years to play all levels and all styles. A music composition major at Arizona State University, I also graduated from L.A.'s Guitar Institue of Technology. In the late 80's I was featured in Guitar Player Magazine's SPOTLIGHT column, and in the early 90's was George Lynch's guitar instructor. (He of DOKKEN fame.) I created George's instructional series for R.E.H. videos and worked with George on other projects. For the most part, though, I was one of the lead instructors at the Music Store in Mesa, Arizona where I taught thousands of students over the years. I currently reside in Sevastopol, Ukraine where I moved to master the Russian language and to share American rock and blues with a part of the world that knows little about it.
