They’ll guide your development of the essential skills and get up and running quickly -- no reading music, no boring exercises, no tedious theory to struggle through. In fact, you’ll play your way through the entire course.
In Play Country Guitar 1 and 2, you built up your vocabulary of country chords and licks; learned how to play several classic country songs; and can now solo and improvise a little bit. Here in Play Country Guitar 3: Tools & Techniques, you’ll learn a variety of killer country licks, more sophisticated chords and songs, and more country techniques to power your soloing and improvisations. For example, you’ll learn a classic country song with a waltz feel, and also learn how to Travis pick through a another popular country song. Bending licks are something you need to have in your arsenal of soloing techniques and so, you’ll learn how to make them really sing along with some pedal steel licks for your pallet of soloing options. You’ll wrap up this course with a great country solo incorporating double stops, pedal steel licks, and an open string cascading lick.
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.
