  • Hi friends of GMC. This is my first lesson so I would like to thank you for listening, and I hope you will enjoy this. Ok, let´s get to work!

    I wanted to make a lesson in the style of Kenny Wayne Shepherd because he is one of my the biggest influences. Kenny is a blues guitarrist like Stevie Ray Vaughan. They both uses easy tecniques for learn but, very complicated to play.
    This lesson was inspired by his second disc called "Trouble Is...". It´s my favourite disc of Kenny, he plays a lot of blues there.

    He uses a fender stratocaster guitar, fender amps, and for me a very special ingredient: The tube screamer - ibanez pedal. A lot of guitarist of blues and rock use it (Satriani, Vai, Andy Timmons, etc).

    To record this, I used a Laney amp, and my pedalboard the "boss gt8", but I used this only to emulate the tube screamer pedal.
    The objetive in this lesson is that you can SOUND like Kenny. So, the most important here is that you listen over and over again and feel the song.
    I recommend to listen to all his discography, all his records are excelent.
    It doesen´t matter how you use your fingers, if it sounds cool. I think that to play the blues you mustn´t think in techniques, scales or arpeggios, you have to feel and play, and it´s a big problem for a lot of guitarrist players. Remember, feel your notes.
    I hope you will enjoy. See you my friends.
