The Advanced Lick Vocabulary curriculum is comprised of select blues guitar lessons from the educators’ existing TrueFire course libraries.
As your technical skills advance, you’ll be able to call on a more sophisticated vocabulary in your solos and improvisations. The vocabulary in this advanced core course is designed to stimulate you creatively and further advance your skills with challenging right and left-hand techniques. Learn these licks as presented and then use the ideas and technical approaches to craft your own vocabulary.
Play Blues Guitar 9: Advanced Lick Vocabulary is organized into 4 sections. In the first section, you’ll work on essential licks. In Section 2 you will dig into the smokin Texas and SRV style. In section 3 you’ll look at concepts like using different scales to build your licks, and then in section 4 you will Step up Your licks to another level.
The educators demonstrate all of the key examples over jam tracks (where and when applicable) to simulate a real-world application, in a musical context. All of the key examples are also tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes.
You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop or slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons. Plus, you’ll have all of the available jam tracks to work with on your own.
Take as much time as you need to work through each video guitar lesson before moving on to the next lesson.
