  • Hi friends! Today we study a very interesting style. So relax, lower the lights, prepare a drink and light a cigarette. Studying this style allows us to learn the essence of all styles. The application of the taste, the vibrato and bending are fundamental and important elements for all styles. In this style is more obvious and makes us study it easier.
    If I have to recommend an artist of this style, I recommend the best of all: Michael Bolton. Is not the one, but is the best for me. Besides enjoying this amazing singer with bluesy influences, one can enjoy the excellent musicians of his band, his guitarist is excellent!

    Well folks, hope you enjoy the lesson as I did.

    In this lesson I use a sound respecting this style:
    - Nice distortion (same of tube screamer, OD-1, etc), light compressor, with some delay and reverb.

    G - F#7 - Bm7 - Em7 - A - D - A/C# - D/F# -

    (Although the song begins with the G chord that does not mean that the lesson is in that hue. Always bear in mind that. If a song has seven chords, you can start from any of those.)

    Palm muting
    Alternate picking
    B Minor Scale + blue note
