Learn the style of soloing from Mary Had A Little Lamb - in 3 difficulty levels. Full tablature and backing tracks included.

About This Course

Mary Had A Little Lamb is a tricky song, but not in the way you might think. It’s a little bit of funk, rock and blues all mixed together. The tempo makes it unsuitable for playing really fast and the 4/4 beat means you can’t use your standard swing-based licks. You need to change how you approach soloing to keep up.

What you’re left with is a song that seems easy but when you really begin to push yourself, it presents a new kind of difficulty that you don’t encounter in other 12-bar blues songs. The Mary’s Lamb lessons capture the funkiness, the soulfulness and some fairly complicated syncopated licks that Stevie played live and in the studio.

Course Tour

You should know what's taught in this course before buying. So here's a tour through the course, with a description of each lesson.

  • Beginner Lesson
    What You'll Learn

    The Beginner Lesson solo is very approachable. There are no fast licks and the timing is predictable. Thereís also plenty of space between licks to catch your breath.

    Included
    • Lesson Video
    • Tablature
    • Backing Track
  • Intermediate Lesson
    What You'll Learn

    The Intermediate Lesson solo leaves out the complicated picking of the Advanced Lesson, while dialing up the difficulty of the Beginner Lesson and leaving a bit less space between licks.

    Included
    • Lesson Video
    • Tablature
    • Backing Track
  • Advanced Lesson
    What You'll Learn

    The Advanced Lesson captures some of the intensity that Stevie only displayed live when playing this song. Some of the licks in this solo took me weeks of practice before I could pick them correctly.

    Included
    • Lesson Video
    • Tablature
    • Backing Track

Course Features

We put a lot of work into making these courses easy to follow, but most importantly effective. Here's a list of features this course offers.

  • Lick-By-Lick Organization

    Learning a long solo is hard, so I break long solos into individual licks. Each lick is taught individually, and you'll always know where you're at.

    The tabs clearly mark where each lick starts, so you can easily find the right spot.

  • Note-For-Note Teaching

    When I teach a solo, I don't simply play the lick and expect you to figure it out - I call out each note by string and fret number.

    This method takes longer, but I want to make sure you know exactly what to play.

  • Organized Lesson Format

    Each solo in this course is taught in a similar format. The solo is broken into individual licks and each lick is taught the same way.

    • First, you see a demonstration of the lick.
    • Then, you see that same demo at 50% speed.
    • Then I teach you the lick note-for-note
  • Chapter Markers

    Long videos are hard to navigate, so we put chapter markers throughout, making it easier for you to skip to the section of the video you were last watching.

    Our DVDs also have these chapter markers, you can skip around a lesson video using the Next and Previous controls.

  • Player's Perspective

    The videos in this course are shot from the over-the-shoulder perspective that you'd use if you were trying to watch what someone was playing. This view allows you to take what you see and more easily translate it to your own guitar neck.

  • Progression Counter

    Our Progression Counter shows you exactly where you are in the chord progression during each lick of the solo. It also shows you which beat the licks start and end on. This incredibly useful tool is shown in each solo demonstration of this course.

  • Tablature

    This course comes with GuitarPro (and PDF) tablature. If you own the GuitarPro software, you can open and play these tablature files.

    To make the tablature easier to navigate, I've inserted labels that clearly mark where each lick starts. These lick numbers match the lick numbers in the lesson videos.

  • Instant Downloads

    As soon as you buy this course, you'll be able to download a zip file containing the entire course. The files are not encrypted, locked, or protected in any way. You own them forever.

    • The videos will play in Quicktime Player or iTunes.
    • Tablature is provided in GuitarPro and PDF formats.
    • Backing Tracks are in MP3 format.
  • iPads / Tablets

    Because we use standard video and audio formats, you can download our courses onto iPads, or other tablets. You just need an app (like Goodreader) that can download and unzip files.
