One of the secrets of playing great rhythm mixed with lead fills and other embellishments is to never stop playing the original rhythm in your head. This kind of multitasking is something you might not already be doing, but you can definitely improve at, it just takes practice. In this lesson I’ll show you how you can work on your “hearing” to make…
 
This is an excerpt from our “Texan Floods - Intermediate” soloing course which teaches you a SRV style Texas Flood solo, but at a more approachable difficulty level. In this lesson you’ll learn the lick played at Bar 9 as we jump to the V chord. It’s based on a more complicated lick that SRV played at this same spot in the progression, but with som…
 
One of my favorite things about Jimi Hendrix’s blues playing was how he played things that nobody else played. This lesson is an excerpt from my “Jimi’s Influence: Red House Blues” course and you’ll learn a lick that fits over the transition into Bar 9 in Red House. It highlights the chord transition in a way only Jimi could.…

If you’re like me, you spend most of your practice time on licks and soloing. But none of that work will help you when it comes to playing a slow, deliberate, arpeggiated rhythm. Such is the case in the song featured in this lesson: “Cry” by Doyle Bramhall II, from the album Welcome.The chords in this rhythm are mostly simply, but there’s almost no…

In this lesson I’ll show you a different way of playing the intro to the song “Honey Bee” by Stevie Ray Vaughan. I first noticed this while cleaning up the “Live at Rockpalast” videos for the Vintage Blues In 4K channel. This variation isn’t any harder to play, but it’s just different enough to get someone’s attention.Vintage Blues In 4KSRV - Honey…

We talked for a while, and thankfully I remembered to turn on my phone to record some of the conversation because he’s a really s…
 
The Texas Storm 1x15 combo from Homestead Amps is a beast of an amp. This is not a practice or hobby amp, it is a serious, professional grade tool that begs to be played on a stage. That’s not to say you can’t use it in the studio, but be prepared for a challenge. I have never had such a hard time capturing the accurate “feel” of an amp. The lows a…
