About This Lesson
Welcome to Two-Hand Groove Guitar. I'm Ben Lacy, and I'm going to show you a style I've developed I call Two-Hand Groove Guitar. I've been playing since I was 7 and I've always been moved by a good groove. My style incorporates ALL of the elements of great groove: drums, bass, guitar, horns.
I'm the kind of guy who when he hears something great, I just gotta learn to play it. So at different times I found myself thinking like a drummer, then like a bass player, keyboard player, horn player - and I bring all that together on one guitar. I'll be showing you the techniques I use to get these sounds, from hammer-on and pull-offs to slapping, brushing and plucking the strings and even ringing keyboard-like pads and horn stabs..
First I'll show you how to emulate an entire drum kit with your guitar. Then we're going to add some great baselines, and then spice it up with some tasty chords. So get your guitar and get ready to get your groove on. We're going to have a lot of fun.
