Watch the Blues Rock Reactor online guitar lesson by Gary Hoey from Blues Rock Reactor
Hi, I'm Gary Hoey, and welcome to Blues Rock Reactor. Blues rock is the foundation of my style and the toolbox that I draw from whether I'm playing the blues, contemporary rock, country, or even metal. Its influences help me find my own personal voice and individuality, which is what Blues Rock Reactor is all about - helping you find your voice and your individuality.
In Section 1, we'll look at ten of my favorite blues riffs that will help get your speed going, your technique more refined, and set you up for the rest of the course. In Section 2, we'll really dig in deep, looking at vibrato, bending, pinch harmonics, trills, using 4th intervals, and some of my favorite picking exercises. Section 3 has some great performance studies - looking at some of my songs and applying the techniques from the first two sections.
Along with this course, you're going to get tabs, notation, and the actual tracks from my Deja Blues album to jam along to. You'll be able to take the techniques that I've shown you and apply it to some real rockin' music. Are you ready? Grab your guitar, and let's get going!
