Adrian Figallo

The Led Zep Groove


This lesson is heavily influenced by Led Zeppelin's, "Moby Dick", and composed based on the guitar style of [Jimmy Page].

Vasoline For The Pilots


This lesson is inspired on one of my all time favorite bands, Stone Temple Pilots. Especifically the song "Vasoline" from their album "Purple". Slowly play the riffs and build up your speed. This is the perfect kind of song for a right hand workout.

Crying Guitar - Lead for Beginners


In this lesson I wanted to create a slow tempo rhythmic blues piece, but this sweet melody just came to me. This is a great starting point to lead playing for beginners. To play this song the right way you need to control your bends and vibratos very well, you must make your guitar sing...cry!

The Doors Style


This lesson is inspired on one of the most powerful and mystic bands in the world, The Doors. Their ever evolving music has inspired countless bands. This is a humble tribute to "Love Me Two Times" from the "People Are Strange" album.

Beginners Corner 12-Strumming & Rhythm

Ben Higgins

Ben's Land of Legato 5


This lesson introduces a new concept to you. 5 note legato patterns. Their odd pattern means it can be difficult to know how to place them over a beat, but if you watch the spoken video I've explained how I place them over this 4/4 backing. These 5 note patterns are worth the effort because they sound great once you have mastered them.. they sound like the sort of thing Chris Poland would have played in Megadeth.

Ben's Land of Legato 4


This time we're looking at licks that have a Joe Satriani vibe to them. Instead of wide scalar licks, we're using 2 note hammer on/pull off licks and combining it with position shifting to get that Satriani sound.

The most difficult part of these type of licks is shifting your fingers in time. We use the index finger to shift frets and it can be difficult to maintain your control. So this is a great test of timing as well as dexterity. The first half of the lesson begins slowly, introducing you to the shapes and the technique required before we up the tempo and start surfing with the alien.

Ben Howell

Bogdan Rodavic

Carlos Carillo

Chowy Fernandez

Nuno's Blues Style


This lesson is simpler in regards to harmony and has the classic blues cadenza. Nuno┬┤s style involves a lot of hammer-ons from nowhere, which he then mutes by hard-pressing the spot where the strings come out on the bridge using the side of his palm. Try this with simple pentatonic patterns and open strings.

Christian's Tapping Etude Major


This lesson will focus on your tapping & hammering.

Arpeggio Workshop Series Level 4


This is the fourth lesson of the series, where we will cover diagonal moves of the previously learned 7th chord arpeggio patterns on the neck. The focus in this lesson is to find and practice diagonal patterns of these 7th chords and to cover them systematically on the fretboard, so you can have better flexibility when using 7th chord arps, and connect at 3 or 4 positions at the time.

Jazz Notes 22-Playing Outside


This lesson is the last one for the Jazz Notes Series.I wrote this solo to show you some ways to play outside the changes. Playing outside is about the use of notes and scales which are not directly related to the background harmony.Of course you need to master "inside" playing before going "outside". You need to understand well how each technique works, otherwise you'll sound like a player who plays a set of random notes through the fretboard.Be sure to master all the previous lessons, especially Jazz Notes 12: Diatonic Improvisation.The chord progression here is the same of Duke Ellington's "It don't mean a thing".Start to play the licks slowly since the tempo at full speed is 180 bpm.I comment each lick to explain the method I've used to sound "outside".
