Courses to help you understand the fretboard.
These courses are the reference point for everything else at Texas Blues Alley. Every bit of music theory or Fretboard Navigation terminology mentioned in any other course is taught in these courses.
Courses to improve your technique.
This is the most in-depth series of lessons about the physical techniques needed for modern blues guitar that you’ll find anywhere. These are not easy courses to master, but they are essential. If you’re serious - really serious - about playing like SRV, Hendrix and others in that vein, these techniques are a mountain you’ll have to climb.
This is a proven system for building speed, using daily drills and progressive exercises. Starting at a very beginner level, you’ll progressively build speed using real SRV licks as a template.
Courses to learn solos, rhythms, chords & more.
This is a massive collection of 150+ blues licks mapped to the 5 Boxes, and played over various song styles.
Learn how to solo like SRV for various songs, and do it at three skill levels. Each course features a Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced level solo that you’ll learn note-for-note.
The Influences courses teach you extended length solos in the style of some of the biggest names in blues history. The solos are usually intermediate to advanced difficulty, and feature note-for-note teaching, tablature, and backing tracks.
These courses will help you build a solid and extensive blues rhythm foundation.
These Rhythm Packs are each focused on a different style of rhythm. Usually, these courses apply to Beginner and Intermediate players.
Song Guide courses are an excellent first step to understanding a song. Instead of just teaching you the song note-for-note, I teach you how to understand the song. You’ll learn about the progressions, a detailed breakdown of the song’s structure, and the themes used for rhythm and soloing.
A Breakdown Course is a note-for-note breakdown of a performance modeled after a specific song. Unlike the Quick Fix courses, the Breakdown courses do have the note-for-note teaching of each lick.
Certain players learn faster by watching and imitating, without listening to the teacher (me) explain every note. For those players, I’ve created several Quick Fix courses. Because there’s no talking, these courses present longer performances broken down into individual licks. Each lick is shown at full speed and then at half speed. These courses are for self-directed students who know they learn fastest by observation.
