Overview
Lenny’s Ballad

It was such a powerful image, Stevie Ray Vaughan sitting at the edge of the El Mocambo stage, playing the song Lenny. The music was so bare - a lesser player might have overplayed, trying to fill the space, trying to create something that wan’t happening. Stevie didn’t overplay. He played what was beautiful, what was right. And when it was time for fireworks, he let it fly.

That’s the balance that I’ve tried to capture in the Lenny’s Ballad lessons. I wanted to teach you the phrasing and feel of the delicate soloing heard throughout the song, but I also wanted to teach you some of the fiery runs that create such contrast when they appear.

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.

    • 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.
