Great blues-rock technique starts here. The Grip examines the ‘thumb-over’ grip used by nearly every legendary blues and blues rock guitarist. This is the most detailed lesson about this technique that you’ll find anywhere.
If you want to master the sound of Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, or countless other legends, you’ll need to re-learn how to hold the guitar. Traditional methods teach a thumb-behind approach. There’s nothing wrong with this approach….unless you want to do it the way most blues and rock legends did.
The Grip is a 2 hour lesson that breaks down the mechanics of playing chords and soloing using the thumb-over grip. Using an E-Form bar chord as a template, you’ll learn the physics of The Grip, what makes it work, and exercises that will stretch your endurance and physical strength to new levels.
