Stranded

This course will teach you how to solo like SRV in the song Crossfire, at three different skill levels.

Overview

Crossfire is a bit of a strange song, it’s kind of rock, kind of blues and you spend most of the time on the I chord. This presents an interesting problem - how do you solo over an unchanging chord progression without sounding boring?

That’s exactly what I wanted to tackle in the Stranded lessons. So many of the songs we love have chord changes that we can use to make the solo more interesting, but in Crossfire there’s a fairly long period of time where we’re just playing over that grooving I chord rhythm. So what I’ve done is taken the major themes that Stevie used when playing Crossfire and extracted the parts that happen over the I chord. The resulting solos have all the power and soul that you’d expect and you barely notice that the rhythm part stays the same the entire way through.

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.

    • The videos will play in Quicktime Player or iTunes.
    • Tablature is provided in GuitarPro and PDF formats.
    • Backing Tracks are in MP3 format.
