Rock and Roll Quick Fix #1

Learn a complete Johnny B. Goode style composition including a 60-bar solo.


Rock and Roll Quick Fix #1

My earliest memory of wanting to play guitar came from watching Marty McFly play Johnny B. Goode in the movie Back To The Future. That rock’n’roll sound struck a nerve with me, and it’s still one of my favorite styles of music.

This isn’t a traditional course. There’s no teaching. Instead, I’ve taken an entire rock’n’roll performance, chopped it into pieces, and given it the same fancy editing as my full courses. Perfect for the self-learner, this course moves fast, and is incredibly efficient.

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.

  • 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.


Will I be taught the whole performance.

This is not a typical course. There is no teaching. Instead, each part of the performance is broken into small segments, with slow motion and tablature.

Who should buy this course?

This course is primarily useful for players who do not need the note-by-note instruction, but who can teach themselves based on a good demonstration - especially with the slow-motion and tablature features.

What will I need to use this course?

If you buy this course, you'll get all the downloadable videos, backing tracks, and tablature, but to get the most value from this course you should use some software that can do looping. Because there's no teaching (i.e. I'm not telling you which notes to play), you'll need to repeat the lick segments over and over to absorb them.

If you join the TXBA Locals, there are over 100 instant loops already programmed for this course.
