Overview
Heavy Swing Blues Rhythms - Volume 1

So Excited, Cold Shot and Change It from SRV, Born With A Broken Heart, Somehow, Somewhere, Someway by KWS… these songs all have a common thread. They have a heavy, guitar-driven rhythm with a swing beat.

That heavy swing rhythm feel is what you’ll learn in this course. I’ve created 5 rhythms in that style, each with a different sound. You’ll also learn some muting techniques necessary to play them cleanly.

Lesson Details

    Lesson 1 (Watch Free): Rhythm 1

    The first lesson is free to watch. Rhythm 1 is fairly simple, but unless you've already developed great muting and raking technique, you'll probably be challenged quite a bit.

    Included
    • Lesson Video
    • Tablature
    • Backing Track
  • Lesson 2
    Lesson 2: Rhythm 2

    Rhythm 2 has a similar sound as Rhythm 1, but using a series of sliding chords to get a different feel.

    Included
    • Lesson Video
    • Tablature
    • Backing Track
  • Lesson 3
    Lesson 3: Rhythm 3

    Rhythm 3 uses a combination of chords and single note walkups to tie together all 3 chords of the progression.

    • Tablature
    • Backing Track
  • Lesson 4

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    • If this course includes tablature, it will be provided in GuitarPro and PDF Format.
    • If this course includes a backing track, it will be provided 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.
