  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 68
    In this lesson we'll discover 15 different session guitar players that were responsible for 1000s (!) of hits.
    I used many different styles, phrasing techniques and sounds to emulate their styles.

    This great package also contains 15 backings (each for every player) based in the styles of popular pop, rock & soul songs.

    Even if these songs sound very similar to the original tracks, these are NO COVERS because I changed the chords (changes), the riffs and more...


    The structure of the videos:

    1. Paul Jackson Jr. Style 0:00-0:53 (Based on "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson)

    2. Steve Cropper Style 0:54-1:52 (Based on "Green Onions" by Steve Cropper)

    3. Nile Rodgers Style 1:53-2:46 (Based on "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk)

    4. Tommy Tedesco Style 2:47-3:16 (Based on "Bonanza Theme")

    5. Steve Stevens Style 3:17-4:24 (Based on "Top Gun Anthem" by Harold Faltermeyer)

    6. Jimmy Page Style 4:25-5:25 (Based on "With A Little Help From My Friends" by Joe Cocker)

    7. Steve Lukather Style 5:26-6:27 (Based on "Physical" by Olivia Newton John)

    8. Michael Landau Style 6:28-7:52 (Based on "Angelia" by Richard Marx)

    9. Larry Carlton Style 7:53-8:58 (Based on "The Light Is On" by Christopher Cross)

    10. James Burton Style 8:59-9:42 (Based on "Susie Q." by Dale Hawkins)

    11. Lee Ritenour Style 9:43-10:58 (Based on "A Little Bumpin'" by Lee Ritenour)

    12. Dann Huff Style 10:59-11:45 (Based on "Angel With A Dirty Face" by Lou Gramm)

    13.Michael Thompson Style 11:46-12:59 (Based on "When A Man Loves A Woman" by Michael Bolton)

    14. Buzz Feiten Style 13:00-13:52 (Based on "Footloose" by Kenny Loggins)

    15. Ray Parker Jr. 13:53-14:47 (Based on "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jr.)
