Awesome topic and very useful spoken explanation Mate!
Thank you Kris!
I'm glad you like it
that's some sharp dressed guitar man
Really rocks. ZZ top lesson is great
Very nice groove, thanks for sharing.
Nice lesson I love ZZ top... You've got a great tone with some good explanation in the 1st video.
Groovy! My friend had me listen to these guys once before.
You're accent is cool! (I'm from the south in the USA.)
Great style coverage! Love the groove!
very cool man! music for the road!
Awesome song, awesome version
I'm very happy about the welcoming of this lesson
It's a 'secret' but maybe I can tell you, that the second part of this lesson will come soon as a Billy Gibbons style fingerpicking solo lesson, called ZZ-Top fingerpicked II. or something.
The solo goes on the same groove, so learn this groove well and maybe you can jam with your friends on this one
I really like the way those riffs sound fingerpicked! Great explanation as well, man!
Awesome, great familiar riffs!
You've got a great tone for this lesson
Hi Mate Nagy. Welcome. I like your playing with this fingerpicking riff reminiscent ZZtop. Saludos y Suerte!!
Hehe Javier, most probably Mate would be very happy to receive such nice compliments from you!
Hi GMC'ers! In this lesson I composed a tune inspired by ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man"! I transformed this song in order to capture the unique vibe of Billy Gibbon's fantastic guitar playing.
I added a simplified bass line to the rhythm to give it an authentic feel. Later I realized that the base line sounds better if I play it with my thumb instead of the pick (personal preference). It then became a finger picking exercise to a cool song. You can also play this lesson using your pick too, so it can be a hybrid picking exercise also.
