Explinations are very helpful to me. Your SRV lesson is an excellent format. I can't think of any improvements but I'm sure there's plenty of good ideas out here. BTW ,got any Buddy Guy in your bag of tricks? Not that I don't have enough to learn already but I'd love to see your approach to his style. Great job your doing here!


Thanks Sam,
I'll see what I can do. :-)

I want to serve you as best as I can, so please let me know what a perfect lesson would be for you!


Your lessons are great and very clear, but I would love to know the chords on the backing tracks (re. modal pentatonics) Lord Gnome (France)

Improve?... well, not possible wink.gif ok, the backing chords in every lesson....

Back in garage days I've always played rythm guitar, now, when I came back to my guitar after over ten years, I want to make my own full songs as I have plenty if ideas. For the rythm playing there're many excellent lessons around here, but for soloing which I want to learn - your ones are THE ONES - they're very melodic and moody, exactly the style I want to reproduce. Plus many of your lessons are playable by me, I mean they're of a proper beginner level - yet still very attractive. Keep coming them, those very melodic lessons are perfect.
Thanks for sharing smile.gif

Thanks man, I'm now adding chords to the main videos for all the new lessons.
Also, if there is a backing track from a lesson you need, don't hesitate to ask and I'll post it on the forum! :-)

I wanted to drop a line here because I was reading this biggrin.gif

What I love about your lessons man, is that you always prepare them with average player in mind, and they are some kind of bubble style. What I wanted to say with this, lessons have lots of distinct parts and in this parts you start with an easier part, then after some other licks, you come with a more advanced type of the previous pattern, that would be difficult if one started from that point, but after nailing the previous one it requires less effort. That way of thinking keeps the overall lesson flowing and that is the trait of a great teacher. And also your lessons cover a lot, so I can always find a Wallimann style of a technique, with that you actually keep the content wide with your great alternative suggestions.

Last one is that when you speak before the lesson, you form a bond with the student and that motivates him to work harder.

Great job man, I dont know if I am in position to make a critic but I seriously love your lessons..

I wont be happy until the Whitesnake style lesson with white cat suit and tassels lol laugh.gif And big blond wig biggrin.gif

I'm joking of course. I'm really happy with the added chords now. Your lessons are great. I just wish I would practice them more. I love your slow pentatonics lesson for the December challenge. smile.gif

David, this isn't much of a suggestion for improvement, but more a suggestion for a lesson. I would love for one of the instructors with a great theory background (such as yourself) give an overview of the creative process you go through whilst writing a lesson/song. For example do you start off with a certain idea/plan - I'm going to play in a certain key/mode and use a certain chord progression etc. I personally would love to learn how to more effectively put my theory knowledge into practice and learn some some different methods in doing so smile.gif

That's a very interesting suggestion, but not sure how I would put that into a lesson... I need to think about it!
But to answer your question, when creating a new lesson, I usually start by throwing a simple backing track together with a drum groove and bass part.

Then I improvise over it a few times until I find something interesting, whether technically or scale wise.
Once that is done, I have a better idea of what the lesson will be talking about.

That's usually when I come up with a lesson titl which helps me on my final take as I try to play my lesson so that it sticks to the title.

Once again, that's a great suggestion you have! I'll think about how to make something like that happen in a future lesson!
