A high-octane mix of traditional styles played with an exciting twist and intense energy, Alternative Roots bands and artists like The Black Keys, Jack White, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Calexico and Gary Clark Jr. are all influenced by blues, country, surf and rock.
This hand-picked collection of 50 Alternative Roots Licks from Mischa Den Haring will equip you with the tool of the trade and a versatile Alternative Roots vocabulary.
As guitarist/vocalist for alternative roots band T-99, Mischa toured all over Europe and the US and their five albums have all received unprecedented critical acclaim. Mischa was nominated twice for best EU guitarist and Blues guitarist by Guitarist magazine. We’re very proud to welcome Mischa to the family with his first TrueFire course, 50 Alternative Roots Licks You Must Know.
”We'll look at some original licks, parts of existing material, and authentic classics that will give you some insight into different approaches to playing alternative roots music. I'll show you how to play cross rhythms as well as traditional country licks played with an edge and attitude. We'll also dig into tone, phrasing, dynamics, feel, and the use of effects like fuzz, reverb, tremolo, echo, and vibrato.”
Mischa demonstrates all of the licks over rhythm tracks and then breaks them down by stepping you through the key concepts, techniques and creative approaches that he used for each lick.
All of the licks are tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes. You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop and/or slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons. Plus, Mischa generously includes all of the rhythm tracks for you to work with on your own.
Grab your guitar and let’s rock our roots with Mischa Den Haring!
