About the Guitar Lesson Plan
Interactive Video Guitar Instruction
Andy covers a diverse range of soloing styles and techniques within the context of eight different key centers (E, F, G, A, Bb, C and D). Each key center series of lessons features different forms, feels and progressions and includes performances and detailed breakdowns covering requisite techniques, solo development, improvisation and application of theory. The soloing examples demonstrate a wide spectrum of both right- and left-hand articulation techniques, phrasing concepts and the stylistic signatures that are found in the playing of all blues guitar masters, ranging from Albert King, B.B. King, T-Bone Walker, Buddy Guy, and Freddie King, to the blues/rock virtuosos such as Jimi Hendrix, Duane Allman, Johnny Winter, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Aledort also takes you to grad school on doublestop sixths, sliding sixths, triads, opens strings, vibrato, hammers, ghost bends, pull-offs, fingerpicks, rolls, diminished 7th lines, cascading lines, expressions, forearm vibrato, B.B.'s box, thematic soloing, improvisation, two-to-three equivalency, repeating triplets, anticipating changes, stretching time, repetition, solo development, dynamics, oblique bends, slides, intervallic jumps, tremolo picking, ascending the fretboard, trills, glissandos and applications of composite blues, Mixolydian, Dorian, and major, minor, and dominant pentatonic scales.
Slow Blues Power is an extraordinary learning experience and bottomless resource of insight for any student of electric blues guitar.
SIDE NOTE! Andy also happens to be a very well-respected blues player in his own right, earning accolades from the likes of Johnny Winter, Joe Satriani, Warren Haynes, John Scofield, Billy Cox, Mike Stern and dozens of others. Andy filmed and wrote this course while rehearsing and touring with the Dickey Betts band. Aledort was clearly “in the zone” during the making of Slow Blues Power - his demos, breakdowns, and commentary are not just especially insightful, inspirational and educational – they comprise and represent perhaps his best work ever on the subject.
