  • You should be familiar with some open chords as well as bar chords and some simple melody playing.
  • It's definitely an advantage if you know how to read guitar tabs, but it's not required

Description

SUN Records is often called the birthplace of Rock'n'Roll, it's also the birthplace of Rockabilly. This little studio in Memphis is the place where Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and many other music stars started their career.
Behind those singers were a group of talented guitarists who didn't know that they would write history by mixing Rhythm and Blues with Country Licks and inventing a musical genre, that changed the world.

If you love the honest, raw and exciting Memphis Rockabilly guitar sound of the 1950s, then this course is for you.

I picked 9 songs and I will teach you the solos exactly how they were played back then.
Split screen technique, tabs and authentic jam tracks in 4 different tempos will help you to learn these solos as fast as possible.

I will also give you some background information to each songs. Furthermore  I have added intros and verses to some of the songs as well, so you will be able to play the complete song after finishing the lessons.

The course will start with simple solos and it'll get more complex later on.

Here is the list of the songs featured in this course:

  1. Take Me (Garden Of Evil) by Jimmy Wages, guitar: Ray Harris

  2. Drinkin' Wine by Gene Simmons, guitar: Carl Simmons

  3. I Walk The Line by Johnny Cash, guitar: Luther Perkins

  4. Only You by Carl Perkins, guitar: Carl Perkins

  5. Get It Off Your Mind by Kenny Parchman, guitar: Richard Page

  6. I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine by Elvis Presley, guitar: Scotty Moore

  7. Prisoner Of The Blues by Tommy Ruick, guitar: Hank Hanlain,

  8. Miss Froggie by Warren Smith, guitar: Al Hopson

  9. Matchbox by Carl Perkins, guitar: Carl Perkins

Who this course is for:
  • This course is meant for guitar players who have played guitar for at least a year or so.
  • They should be able to play simple melodies and chords on the guitar.
  • I assume, that you are interested in 1950s rockabilly/rock and roll
  • This course is not for you, if you have just started to play the guitar
