  • Hi all! Welcome to my Ballad & Blues lesson in the style of Gary Moore. I know that there were many great lessons in this style on GMC, but I couldn't stop to make one.

    Gary Moore is the one of my favourite guitarists. His playing is very emotional, full of great vibrato and beautiful melodies - just amazing!

    Lesson is set up in 2 parts:

    First (ballad) part, time signature is 4/4,
    Second (blues) part, time signature is 6/8

    I used mostly A minor scale with some blue notes in second part.

    chord progression in
    -ballad part:
    Am, Dm/B, E, Am(Am/G), Fmaj7, Dm/B, E, Am
    Am, Dm/B, E, Am(Am/G), D/F#, G, E, Am
    Dm7, Dm7/G, Cmaj7, D/F#
    Fmaj7, G

    -blues part:
    Am,------Fmaj7, E7#9, E7b9

    We are going to use:

    - vibrato,
    - alternate picking,
    - Gary Moore style licks

    This is the preset I used for the POD XT live for this lesson:

    Amp: 1990 Brit J800 Drive 7 - Bass 5 - Middle 7 - Treble 6 - Presence 5
    Cab: 4x12 1978 Brit Celest T-75s
    Com: Threshold 10 - Gain 12
    Dly: Delay Time - 60 (8th note) - Mix 30%
    Rev: Medium Hall - 45%

    The lesson is available in the guitar pro 5 file, mp3 backing tracks included.

    Have fun!
