Learn a complete Johnny B. Goode style composition including a 60-bar solo.
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.
While many of our courses were originally available as downloadable purchases, our entire catalog of courses is now exclusively available through our TXBA Locals memberhip program.
When new courses are released, they may eventually be made available for purchase for a limited time, but there is no guarantee of how soon after release this will happen.
You can access this, and every other course at Texas Blues Alley right now by joining the TXBA Locals Program
Preview the format used in this course by watching this free sample. You'll learn more about what a Quick Fix course is, and you'll see the first (of 5) solos broken down into segments just like you'll get in the course.
The first lesson covers some of the soloing themes used in the song and some details about looping.
In this lesson you'll learn the basic rhythm pattern and some tips for playing it "right". Then you'll see the rhythm broken into sections with slow motion and tablature.
Each of the 5 solo choruses is broken into separate licks with individual demonstrations, slow motion demonstrations, and demonstrations with tablature.
You'll get 3 backing tracks with this course, both in video and audio form.
The video backing tracks will have the progression counter in the video.
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.
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.
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.
