Original Ballad

Learn the chords and one chorus of the solo from a soulful original ballad, ala Life Without You.


Original Ballad

In 2008 I did a gear demonstration where I played an original song called Just Another Love Song. The demo was well received and I got many requests to teach the song as a lesson. In this series I teach the chord progression with a Hendrix inspired feel and one full chorus of the solo.

I also provide a “Commentary” video where I walk you through the entire demonstration talking about what I did and why I did it. For players who like to see inside the mind of a player they are studying, this is a great tool.
