About This Lesson
When I think about guitar heroes the first person that comes to mind is Jimmy Page. You can picture him, Sunburst Les Paul strung around his kneecaps, dragon suit, wall of Marshall amps behind him. (Actually, that's the screen saver on my computer!) The king of blues-rock and the reason I picked up the guitar. That image personifies the genre. I have studied jazz and classical guitar but I always go back to blues rock, I love how players like Page, Gibbons, Hendrix, Clapton, Beck, Van Halen, and others melded the root feeling of the blues and supercharged it. It always gets me going and to me, that's what guitar is all about! In this course I pick out some of my favorite blues infused rock licks, tricks, and progressions that have served me well for many years. The licks are not in any particular order so feel free to pick and choose. I also bring in some of my favorite ideas from Michael Schenker, David Grissom, Eric Johnson, Joe Bonamassa, and others. So stop reading this and let's get into some playing!
