Una de las bandas más interesantes para salir de la década de 1960 fue el grupo rotativo de Ian Anderson de músicos ingleses conocidos como Jethro Tull. La banda comenzó en una dirección de blues, pero luego se dirigió a un mundo desconocido que podría ser considerado Progressive Folk. Flauta virtuosa de Anderson y habilidades con la guitarra acústica combinadas a la perfección con estilos de la guitarra eléctrica de Martin Barre y cortaron un camino muy particular.

We Used To Know fue lanzado el segundo álbum de Jethro Tull, Stand Up, ya que estaban empezando a salir de sus raíces de blues y en una dirección más progresista.

4) Hasta a mí

Aqualung contó con un buen número de melodías a base de riff y por mí, como Himno de 43 años, es otro con cambios de acordes sencillos, un riff asesino, con un puente pastoral tirado en un poco de variedad. Esta lección analiza algunas de las adiciones comunes Ian Anderson añade a su ritmo partes de guitarra, así una mirada independiente a cómo es que ahora realiza en directo, en una clave diferente a la original.

5) Wond'ring Aloud

Wond'ring Aloud es una canción balada / folk hermosa escondido en el medio de Aqualung, de Jethro Tull. Es un escaparate perfecto para el estilo de la guitarra exquisita de Ian Anderson. Esta canción es suave en 3.4 tiempo y cuenta con algunas medidas simples de rasgueo, algunas carreras de conexión de las notas bajas, un gran uso de los hammer-ons y pull-offs, y algunas síncopas muy complejas que hacen que sea muy difícil. Una carta de acordes simples se incluye para una versión que es muy jugable por estudiantes principiantes de guitarra, así como la ficha detallada que es muy preciso a la versión actual se enseña en la lección.

Los principales retos en la canción son la alternativa rápida y precisa recoger técnica, y el gran uso de la síncopa fuera de compás.

7) Locomotive Breath

Locomotive Breath, de Aqualung, es una gran canción para aprender a tocar con la técnica de movimiento de la mano derecha constante. ¿De verdad sólo tiene que golpear un acorde acentuado en el primero tiempo del compás y luego mantener un flujo constante de corcheas jugado con percusión (silenciar las cuerdas). También le da la oportunidad de practicar acordes de la barra de la forma A Major, uno de los más difíciles para muchas personas.

8) Thick As A Brick

Una canción que hemos destinado a completar una lección sobre desde el primer día en totallyguitars es Thick As A Brick by Ian Anderson y su alter ego, Jethro Tull. Cuenta con flatpicking muy intrincado y rápida con la síncopa compleja, todos los cuales deben seguir cuando el canto entra, y eso es todo sólo en los primeros 30 segundos. El resto de la Parte 1 de esta obra maestra de 45 minutos es muy divertido de jugar y presentará todo un reto incluso para los guitarristas muy logrado, aunque gran parte de la canción es sencilla rasgueo. Aunque esto tendrá que ser considerada como una lección de guitarra avanzada, que puede ser muy accesible a los estudiantes de guitarra intermedios si trabajan en cada parte muy lentamente. La lección incluye un juego completo a través de e instrucción detallada sobre cada una de las partes, una lección de 60 minutos en una canción de 3 minutos.

También utiliza acordes de la barra, exclusivamente, las altas en el cuello, rápidamente cambiantes. Se puede jugar con la versión de 4 cuerdas de los acordes de la barra comunes y este enfoque está cubierto también.

10) Patinaje lejos

A estas alturas todo el mundo debe ser consciente de los increíbles talentos de Ian Anderson, en muchos niveles. Patinaje Away (On The Thin Ice de un nuevo día) * tendría que ser considerado como uno de sus clásicos de guitarra acústica. La canción fue lanzada en 1974 en el álbum de Jethro Tull War Child y es una de las obras maestras más complejas y altamente sincopados de Ian. Esta lección detallada alto la guitarra y partes vocales, así como la forma de combinarlos en una gran presentación en solitario.

Mississippi John Hurt was one of the most popular and influential guitarists in the Country Blues Style. His playing was graceful and complemented his gentle voice perfectly. Most of his songs featured Travis-style alternate bass picking, although he was generally not concerned with traditional harmony or establishing consistent patterns, as much as creating a solid and fascinating accompaniment to his songs. He commonly played in 4 different keys, and in this package we look at an example of each one, as well as a very basic instrumental to get started.

We start with Shake That Thing, a simple group of blues licks in the key of G. If you have a bit of experience with the Travis technique you should have little trouble getting this down and heading into his more complicated tunes. This is also a good place to start learning the alternating technique if you have not tried it before. Nivel 2

Stagolee is in the key of D and uses the 3 major chords in that key- D, G and A. It is a somewhat unusual form that is 11 bars long and uses melody notes that are all easy to reach within the chord shapes. Nivel 3

Ain't No Tellin' takes us into the key of C where the technique of using your left thumb to fret the 6^th string for F chords is introduced. It is in a conventional folk form following a 16-bar progression and presents a challenge to coordinate the playing with singing. Level 4′

We take another trip into the key of G with Got The Blues, Cant Be Satisfied. In this tune we add a couple of John's signature sounds of partial chords up the neck. It is also quite challenging to play and sing as it is quite fast and really needs some bluesy licks played along with the vocals. Nivel 6

We complete this package with one of his most complex tunes, Candy Man Blues. This is in the key of A and features quite a few up the neck chords in the solo section. It is also an example of how the steady rhythm of the bass notes is more important than there harmonic purpose, meaning he frequently uses any available open bass notes regardless of how they are related to the chord. Nivel 6

Crash Into Me by Dave Matthews is an example of a song that uses a droning chord with a slightly moving bass line to create an interesting accompaniment. The droning chord is just an E5 (power chord) and the bass notes change with a syncopated rhythm. As in many of Dave's songs, the chord fingering is a bit stretchy but the lesson focuses on counting carefully to get the bass notes in the right places. Nivel 5

2) Extreme – More Than Words 1990

Más que palabras, por Extreme cuenta con una técnica interesante pero difícil para la mano derecha. Es un estilo de percusión de juego que requiere un ritmo constante similar a un patrón de rasgueo.

4) Nirvana - Come As You Are 1992

Nirvana entró en escena a principios de 1990 y fue una parte importante del movimiento grunge que se inició en el noroeste del Pacífico, en parte inspirado en algunas de las canciones y estilos de Neil Young. Kurt Cobain escribió y cantó algunas canciones muy básicas, la mayoría de los cuales son interesantes progresiones de acordes, junto con algunos riffs interesantes. Come As You Are es un gran ejemplo de esto, ya que comienza con un riff simple que se siguió con un juego de 2-tocan los acordes con cejilla. Es importante que desempeñar el riff con la técnica de recolección alterna, y los acordes de la barra, incluso se podría reducir a acordes de la energía, por lo que esta canción aunque sea un poco más fácil de jugar.

9) Radiohead – Karma Police 1997

Karma Police by Radiohead, from their 3rd album OK Computer, is a nice, simple strumming tune, although this haunting melody might be a bit melancholy for a sing-along. An easy strumming pattern and a few barre chords are all it takes.

10) REM – Losing My Religion 1991

This lesson on Losing My Religion presents the basic rhythm and strumming, as well as some ways to incorporate a bit of the mandolin parts into the intro and bridge.

1) Ozzy Osbourne – Crazy Train 1980

Crazy Train was released in 1980 by Ozzy Osbourne on his first solo album Blizzard Of Oz. It is based on a simple riff that uses an alternating picking technique with power chords and a short scale-based run. This lesson is part of our Intros, Riffs and Licks Series, and really addresses only the opening riff. Nivel 4

2) Bob Marley – Redemption Song 1980

Redemption Song is one of very few songs he played solo with just acoustic guitar accompaniment. This makes it a great song for beginning and intermediate guitar players as it uses only open chords, a simple strumming pattern, and a basic opening melody picked out on the bass strings. Nivel 3

3) Stray Cats – Stray Cat Strut 1981

The Stray Cats came on the scene in the early 1980s with a sound that was more 1950s and brought new life to the Rockabilly style that was so popular then. They found better acceptance in the UK than the US before an American record company would talk to them but then had quite a string of hits over the next few years. Stray Cat Strut is one of their signature songs, and although Brian Setzer is partial to the electric guitar, it transfers very nicely to the 'unplugged' version that Neil does in this lesson. The lesson goes over the rhythm guitar accompaniment to the vocal sections, as well as acoustic versions of all the main leads. Nivel 8

4) Violent Femmes – Blister In The Sun 1982

Blister In The Sun is from 1982, the Violent Femmes debut album. The song is a short, catchy riff in the key of G, with some fast strumming over easy chords. This is a good song to work on a relatively easy set of techniques that are made difficult because of the speed involved. Nivel 3

5) A-ha – Take On Me 1985

Many songs of the 80s were driven by keyboard riffs and a synthesized, electronic rhythm feel. A-Ha came out of Norway and added a pyrotechnic vocal element to the mix and produced Take On Me. This song, which only needs to be heard once to become unforgettable, is probably not one many people would think about playing on the guitar, and one segment discusses arranging keyboard pieces for guitar in general. The lesson includes a basic rhythm guitar accompaniment as well as a chord solo of the intro, which incorporates the rapid keyboard riff into a strumming pattern. Nivel 7

6) Bon Jovi – Wanted Dead Or Alive 1986

One of the biggest bands of the 80s, Bon Jovi, featured some good songwriting and some great guitar playing, mostly from the team of Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora. Their 1986 album Slippery When Wet included Wanted Dead Or Alive, which had a very distinctive opening run played on a 12-string guitar. Other than that it is a pretty basic strumming song with some syncopated chord changes and a slightly bluesy fill played as part of the vocal hook. Nivel 4

7) Poison – Every Rose Has Its Thorn 1988

Poison was one of the glam/hair metal bands of the 80s who had their biggest hit with the power ballad Every Rose Has Its Thorn. Typical of attitudes and trends at the time, the song is a simple chord progression gently strummed with lyrics that can be interpreted many different ways. This 4-chord song is great for beginners as it starts introducing the technique of different strumming patterns in consecutive measures. Nivel 2

8) The La's – There She Goes 1988

The late 1980s brought us a one-hit-wonder out of Liverpool, The La's. You may not remember the band but There She Goes has appeared in numerous movies over the last 20 years. It is a good example of using lots of guitars to create a bouncy, jangly texture with the added plus of a catchy melody. In this short guitar lesson we look at strumming the rhythm guitar part as well as a segment on incorporating the opening lead into a strumming pattern. Nivel 4

9) Midnight Oil – Put Down That Weapon 1987

Put Down That Weapon is one of Midnight Oil's topical songs about the effects of war and was released in 1987 on their album Diesel And Dust. It is typical of their sound with a melodic, arpeggio intro, driving bass line through the verse and chorus, some full chord strumming sections, a catchy riff to close the chorus, and a crashing power chord interlude, all of which are covered in the lesson. This song is very special to MattB and MattM, and as such there are a few bonus segments- an intro by MattW, a Fly On The Wall with Neil and Matt working on the song, and a couple of Flip-Out videos of the two Matts going over it. Nivel 5

10) Metallica – One 1989

This short lesson on One, by Metallica goes over the opening riff and how it is incorporated into the rhythm guitar parts for the vocal sections of the song. It also includes the variations on the riff that occur later, the power chords used in the chorus, tab to the rhythm parts and some of the lead sections, as well a separate segment on a bit of the history of the band and the times. Nivel 2

This set of songs represents a collection of early tunes by David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash, mostly from their albums released around 1970. A couple of alternate tunings are used in half the songs, which represent a wide range of difficulty levels.

1) 4 + 20

4 + 20 is one of Steve Stills' easiest fingerpicking songs and a great place for guitar students to start getting exposed to the D Modal family of tunings. This lesson uses the tuning DADDAD and keeps a steady alternating bass pattern played with the thumb in a Travis-style accompaniment. The song originally appeared on the CSNY album Deja vu in 1970. Level 4

2) Suite: Judy Blue Eyes

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes is probably Stills' most recognized song and the one that really brought them into the spotlight, particularly after their appearance at Woodstock in 1969. It was written for contemporary songstress Judy Collins and consists of multiple sections (hence the 'Suite” part of the name), all of which include complex guitar parts and lush vocal harmonies. The guitar is in the D Modal tuning (DADDAD) and uses a variety of strumming and picking techniques. Some of the lesson addresses improvising in Stills' style in this open tuning. Level 6 Graham Nash is a master songwriter of tunes that require only some basic guitar techniques but ones that are really fun to play and sing.

3) Teach Your Children

Teach Your Children is a classic example of this. The song is a 3-chord progression in the key of D, with a step out into a 4^th chord in the chorus. A simple country-style strumming pattern is all that is necessary to make this a great song for beginners to sit around the campfire and play with friends. Nivel 2

4) Triad

David Crosby wrote Triad while he was still a member of the Byrds but it was a bit risque for them at the time. It was originally released by The Jefferson Airplane on Crown Of Creation but David continued to play it live at Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young concerts. His version first appeared on 4 Way Street, from their 1970 tour. This short lesson shows the chords and fills that accompany this haunting tune. Nivel 5

5) Love The One You're With

Love The One You're With is a Stephen Stills song that dates back to the early CSNY days and is frequently done with electric guitars or as a big production. Like many of Stills' songs, it started out as an acoustic tune in the D Modal tuning. Stills used DDDDAD but DADDAD is a more efficient and harmonically rich version that is used in this lesson. We also introduce a new twist with this lesson- that we are calling a 'Work It Out Lesson.' In the first segment Neil plays through the song and gives you hints about figuring it out yourself. The next segments present the 'Answers', with Breakdowns of the chords, the strumming, and the vocals. Nivel 5

6) Marrakesh Express

Marrakesh Express was written by Graham Nash and appeared on the CSN album in 1969. It is a relatively simple strumming song, although it moves along. It uses a couple of unusual chord voicings in the beginning, derived from a 'D' shape moved up the neck, but other than that it is standard chords, mostly in the key of G and a lot of fun to play. Nivel 4

7) Guinnevere

A feature of many David Crosby tunes is the use of altered tunings. Guinnevere is an great example of how he changes the pitch of a few strings, starts messing around with chord shapes and sounds, adds a somewhat abstract melody with complex harmonies, and creates beautiful music. The tuning is EBDGAD and uses an arpeggio-style picking pattern over some fairly simple, but unusual chord shapes. He also is never concerned with playing anything exactly the same way twice, and as such recreates each song every time he plays it. We take that approach in this lesson and start with some specific patterns but look at changing and varying them on the fly. Nivel 6

8) Deja Vu

Deja Vu is another David Crosby tune that uses the EBDGAD (Em11) Tuning, like the one used in Guinnevere. This one opens with a cross-picked intro before settling into a series of colorful chords that are mostly strummed, in an improvising manner. Translation: We don't talk about strumming specifics, just a few thoughts about keeping a steady rhythm but creating a mysterious mood, as called for in the song. Nivel 6

9) Southern Cross

In 1982 Crosby, Stills & Nash released their album Daylight Again, which included Southern Cross, which has now become a standard part of their concerts. The song only uses three chords with a bit of a syncopated strumming pattern making it a great guitar lesson for beginning to intermediate students. The lesson includes a chord and lyric chart and breaks the strumming down to concentrating on individual eighth notes. Nivel 4

10) Helplessly Hoping

Helplessly Hoping is a classic fingerstyle tune by Stephen Stills that was released in 1969 on the first Crosby, Stills & Nash album. Stills' playing is generally very free form and he never plays this song exactly the same way twice. The lesson covers the chord progression and presents a 'Campfire Version' that is easy to strum, as well as great detail on specific licks and additions that Stills uses and how to add your own variations to fingerpicking patterns, making the arrangement your own. Nivel 6

4) Jerry Jeff Walker – Mr. Bojangles

Mr. Bojangles, written by Jerry Jeff Walker is a classic American folk- country tune, even though the subject matter and time signature are a bit unusual. It is in 3/4 time and features a descending bass line similar to These Days by Jackson Browne and America by Paul Simon.

It has been covered by hundreds of artists, most notably the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Sammy Davis Jr., and even Bob Dylan. Nivel 4

5) Townes Van Zandt – Pancho And Lefty

Alison es una de las canciones más conocidas de Elvis Costello, que fue lanzado en su primer álbum My Aim Is True, en 1977 Al igual que muchas de sus canciones, las letras se pueden interpretar de muchas maneras, y no es probable que esta es la canción de amor que podría parecer a primera escucha.

Typical of a Billy Joel song, It's Still Rock And Roll uses a wide range of chords, including some bar chords and some power chords. The power chords can be played using the common shuffle pattern that moves from the 5^th of the chord to the 6^th of the chord on beats 2 and 4 in each measure.

This set of songs covers much of his output all the way from his first album, All Things Must Pass, to his last, Brainwashed, works in a little of his beloved ukulele, and includes a song he wrote that was a hit for his buddy Ringo.

1) My Sweet Lord

My Sweet Lord was George's first solo hit in 1970 and was one of our leading vote getters in the Recommend A Lesson section here at TG for quite a while. This lesson covers strumming it in a couple of different keys, one using a capo, and also goes over the slide guitar parts that immediately identify the song. Nivel 5

2) If Not For You

If Not For You was written by Bob Dylan and appeared on his 1970 album New Morning. George Harrison, who had always been a fan of and was heavily influenced by Dylan, covered in it 1970 as well on his album All Things Must Pass. George's version added some slide guitar to the accompaniment, giving it a touch of his signature sound. The lesson goes over the chord progression as well as some of the slide fills. If you have not tried playing bottleneck or slide guitar you might start with the lesson on Amazing Grace. If Not For You is a good one for the second step of your bottleneck journey. Nivel 4

3) Isn't It A Pity

Isn't It A Pity was written by George in 1966 but was not recorded until he started working on his solo album All Things Must Pass, released in 1970. Neil's lesson shows a way to strum through the chord progression in the original key of G major,but also includes a look at George's acoustic demo version recorded in January 1969, when the Beatles were shooting the movie Let It Be. Nivel 5

4) Tenga cuidado de las Tinieblas

Todas las cosas deben pasar fue el álbum que realmente trajo las canciones de George Harrison a la atención del público. Lanzado en 1970, justo después de los Beatles se separaron, que estaba lleno de grandes canciones, incluyendo Beware Of Darkness. La canción también fue grabada por Leon Russell o menos al mismo tiempo, y en 1996 fue cubierta por la banda de rock progresivo moderno Spocks Beard. All Things Must Pass fue producido con una muy pesada mano de Phil Spector, pero tenemos la suerte de que George hizo algunos demos que fueron despojados a actuaciones sólo en solitario. En consecuencia, esta canción hace una gran lección de la guitarra acústica. Se juega en la clave de E, con un buen número de acordes de la barra, junto con un par de acordes fuera de la llave, y la lección incluye un segmento sobre la transposición a la tonalidad de la B también. Nivel 6

5) No Come Easy

Una canción George escribió en la misma época, no vienen fácil se le dio a su antiguo compañero Ringo y se convirtió en uno de sus primeros lanzamientos en solitario, que sale en abril de 1971 Cuenta con una sencilla lamen la guitarra de apertura, evidentemente, mucho en el estilo de George ..

6) Dar mi amor

En 1973 George lanzó la continuación de All Things Must Pass, Viviendo en el mundo material. Incluía su próximo éxito, Dame amor (Dame Paz en la tierra), una canción tocada con un capo en el tercer traste y en su mayoría acordes en la tecla de D. Muchas de las canciones de George cuentan con combinaciones de acordes inusuales y esto no es una excepción. El rasgueo, por otra parte, es algo básico. La lección incluye un rápido vistazo a un relleno de piano que se produce en el coro también. Nivel 4

7) All Those Years Ago

George Harrison y sus compañeros de banda viejos eran maestros de interesante progresión de acordes, muchas veces combinando acordes de varias claves en una sección de una canción, y otras veces llegar bastante lejos de patrones armónicos convencionales. All Those Years Ago alcanza el borde del área un poco con la adición de un menor, una aumentada, e incluso un sexto acorde menor. Esta lección de la guitarra se centra principalmente en rasguear las cuerdas, aunque también buscamos a jugar un tipo de reproducción aleatoria riff con una capa de blues, así como un par de segmentos en la transposición a una llave diferente de la original. La canción apareció por primera vez en su álbum de 1981 En alguna parte en Inglaterra, y fue escrito como un homenaje de George a John Lennon. Nivel 6

8) Manejar con cuidado

In the 1980s George got together with some of his best buddies, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, and Jeff Lynne, and put out a couple of great collaborative efforts as The Traveling Wilburys. Their first album, Volume 1, included George's song Handle With Care. It features an opening segment by George, followed by a section featuring Roy, and a 3rd part done by Tom, Bob and Jeff. The chords are very basic and the strumming can be simple as well, although we look at a pattern that includes double bass notes played on consecutive eighths, which adds a bit to the level of difficulty. Nivel 5

9) End Of the Line

A second Wilburys song, End Of the Line is well recognized because of a memorable video of the band performing the tune on a train. Many of the songs were true collaborations with parts written and sung by all members of the band. End Of The Line is a very basic strumming song but includes an intro that uses 3-string chords up the neck. These are from the D, A and E families and played on just the top 3 strings. Nivel 4

10) Between The Devil And the Deep Blue Sea

The album George was working on in his last days was Brainwashed, released posthumously in 2002. George had always been enamored by the sound of the ukulele and he included Between The Devil And the Deep Blue Sea on the album. Harold Arlen (Over The Rainbow) wrote this standard in 1932 and George played it on the ukulele in a very traditional manner. This lesson goes over the chord progression and strumming techniques for guitar, as well as how to get the ukulele sound on the guitar, and even how to play it on the ukulele. Nivel 6

The songs of the 1960s were as diverse as the times themselves. Folk, blues, jazz, pop, and rock styles had merged and emerged into many new sounds. Some of these, combined with some non-musical influences became the Psychedelic Sound. In this package we explore a wide range of hits from the time.

1) The Youngbloods – Get Together

Get Together is one of the most recognizable songs from the mid 1960s, and features the voice of Jesse Colin Young and his band, the Youngbloods. The lesson covers the campfire version, a couple of ways to play the opening lead, a bit about transposing to a key to better suite your voice, as well as details on creating a chord solo by combining the chords and melody. Nivel 4

2) The Turtles – Happy Together

Happy Together was the only Turtles song that hit #1 in the US, knocking out Penny Lane in 1967. The song is mostly a simple strumming tune but in this lesson we look at fingerpicking the distinctive intro. Nivel 4

3) The Mamas And Papas – California Dreamin'

California Dreamin' is another song that exemplifies the era of peace and love. Written by John Phillips shortly before forming The Mamas And The Papas, it was released in 1965 and is a great strumming and singing tune. Nivel 5

4) The Doors – Love Street

Jim Morrison penned the lyrics to *Love Street*watching hippies go by his house in Laurel Canyon in 1967. Guitarist Robby Krieger came up with a fascinating chord progression and melody that cycles through multiple keys. This guitar lesson includes a simple strumming accompaniment as well as an alternating fingerpicking one that is more like what Robby played. It is also quite a workout as it is best to play almost all the chords as barre chords. Love Street was released in 1968 on the Doors third album Waiting For The Sun. Nivel 6

5) Jefferson Airplane – White Rabbit

In 1967 the so-called 'Summer Of Love' took place in California, specifically in San Francisco. The Jefferson Airplane was one of the main bands that were part of a developing sound now considered Psychedelic Rock. *White Rabbit*was written by Grace Slick while she with another band, The Great Society, and it is certainly one most identified with the time. It uses an unusual set of 6 major chords set to a hypnotic, bolero – type rhythm, an eastern-influenced opening lead played by Jorma Kaukonen, and fantasy lyrics based on Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland. In the lesson we look at both the rhythm and lead guitar parts. Nivel 5

6) Donovan – Season Of The Witch

The psychedelic sound was not confined to the West Coast of California. Across the Atlantic, Donovan Leitch, who had already released two folk albums, became one of the first London musicians to adopt the sound and join the Flower Power brigade. His first recording with an electric guitar was *Season Of The Witch*, and although the ripples were not as big as the reaction to Dylan going electric, the times certainly were changing. This is really just a two-chord jam with almost improvised lyrics and the lesson talks about creating strumming patterns, transposing a chord progression to other keys, thoughts on lead playing using the Pentatonic Minor scale, and even includes a Jam Along segment. Nivel 4

7) Strawberry Alarm Clock – Incense And Peppermints

Much of the music we consider the soundtrack to the 'Summer Of Love' was created by bands based in Southern California. The Strawberry Alarm Clock might be classified by many as a 'one hit wonder' with their catchy tune *Incense And Peppermints*. With music written by Mark Weitz and Ed King (later of Lynyrd Skynyrd), its cryptic lyrics, heavy organ sound, and poppy background vocals epitomize the sound of Psychedelic Rock. It is a good example of many songs of the time that used disjointed chord progressions (not necessarily from a single key), many different parts, and layers of sound for a colorful effect. This lesson goes over the rhythm guitar and chord progressions. Nivel 5

8) The Animals – House Of The Rising Sun

House Of The Rising Sun is an old folk song that found new life in the 60s, particularly after Eric Burdon and The Animals recorded their dynamic version featuring the electric guitar playing a distorted arpeggio through the chord progression. This lesson looks at fingerpicking it acoustically but it transfers very nicely to the electric as well. Nivel 2

9) Iron Butterfly – In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

Iron Butterfly was a Southern California band formed in the mid-1960s who jumped on the heavy, psychedelic bandwagon and created one of the benchmark songs of the time, *In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. *It combined a catchy riff, a simple run, and a short chord progression with a classical organ intro and an extended jam with solos for each member into a classic rock masterpiece, although more from a historical perspective rather than musical virtuosity angle. In this lesson we look at the basic accom-paniment parts but also take a classical guitar look at playing the rapid arpeggio opening. This segment would probably rate at Level 8, but the main part of the lesson is Level 5.

10) The Byrds – Eight Miles High

One of the bands that really helped define the Psychedelic Sound of the Sixties was The Byrds. Their early line up with Roger (Jim) McGuinn, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, and Gene Clark produced a defining song of the era, Eight Miles High. The song featured McGuinn's 12-string Rickenbacker guitar, combined elements influenced by John Coltrane and Ravi Shankar, and really opened up the ears of the musical community. This lesson goes over the chord progression and a foray into improvising in the Dorian mode… definitely a mind-expanding lesson. Nivel 5

This new lessons package includes Country Blues Guitar Volume 1. Right now we are offering lifetime access to these lessons for a limited time. This video lesson series is expertly taught by Neil Hogan teaching you Country Blues Guitar.

In Lesson 2 we learn a couple of songs in the key of E. These expand on the exercises in Lesson 1 by combining them with some chord changes and arranging them in a pattern of measures. Smokestack Blues is an 8-bar progression over 1 chord and is a variation of Howlin' Wolf's Smokestack Lightning. Blues Man takes the idea a step further and branches into a 16-bar progression using chords Iyep -IV-V in the key (EAB). Both songs are done using the Mono Bass technique in a style similar to pieces by Big Bill Broonzy, among others, and would be considered Level 1 and 2 respectively. The lesson concludes with a segment on experimenting with your own licks.

Lesson 3 introduces a song the key of A and adds the technique of Alternating Bass notes. Mississippi Blues #3 uses some hammer ons and passing bass notes between chords and is a bit more folk-blues, in the style of Mississippi John Hurt. This song is an example of a 24-bar progression, mainly because the first 8 measures are essentially repeated as the last 8 measures. It is a bit more advanced than the songs in Lesson 2 and would be considered a Level 4 song.

In Lesson 4 we look at Sand Dollar Blues, a 16-bar progression in the key of G. This uses the Alternating Bass technique as well, and introduces the idea of syncopated melody notes being played before the chord changes, an anticipation by musical definition. We also discuss chord inversions; chords with bass notes other than the root, sometimes known as 'slash' chords (D7/F#). Sand Dollar Blues is a Level 4 song and is similar to pieces by John Fahey and some simpler ones by Reverend Gary Davis.

Lesson 5, Summertime Strut is another 16-bar progression, but with a ragtime feel like more complex pieces by Reverend Gary Davis, Blind Blake, Blind Boy Fuller, and even a touch of Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant. This lesson is in the key of C and addresses the theory of using chords outside the key signature. It includes some quick changes and other left hand techniques that will require a little more time to master- stretching and moving separate fingers in different directions at the same time, and the option of using your left thumb to fret notes on the 6th string. It is a Level 5 song and completes Volume 1 of the Country Blues Guitar course.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer Guitar Lesson Package

Greg Lake has penned a handful of great songs for guitarists. He is of course best known as the bass player and voice of progressive rock pioneers Emerson, Lake& Palmer but his acoustic guitar songs are mini- masterpieces that feature complex and intricate techniques, as well as beautiful melodies. In this set of lessons we breakdown his five most requested and popular tunes.

We start at the beginning of ELP's catalog with Lucky Man. This is really a lesson for beginners as it uses just 4 open chords and a simple strumming pattern. This is a good song to work on coordinating singing with playing, as the rest of the lessons get a bit more complicated. Nivel 1

Continuing chronologically, we come to The Sage. This appeared on their live album 'Pictures At An Exhibition' , where most of the album was Keith Emerson's interpretation of the classic Mussorgsky piece but Greg composed this beautiful ballad. It uses mostly an arpeggio technique, very common in many of his songs, but includes a very challenging, classical instrumental section, which uses the hybrid picking technique of combining a pick with the fingers. Nivel 8

Their fourth album, Trilogy, included probably his most famous piece, From The Beginning. It features a couple of unusual chords and a percussive strumming accompaniment. This is followed by an arpeggio section that uses the standard alternating picking technique. It can be quite challenging to sing along with this style of accompaniment. Nivel 7

Still You Turn Me On was from their next album, Brain Salad Surgery and is played in Dropped D tuning. Greg does many of his songs, including this one, on a 12-string guitar but it sounds great on a 6- string as well. Like many of his songs, it uses unusual chord shapes along with an arpeggio accompaniment. Nivel 6

As ELP was winding down the first phase of their career in 1974, Greg recorded a solo single that has become a seasonal standard, I Believe In Father Christmas. This piece is also done in Dropped D and uses a simple set of 2-finger chords working their way down the neck. He plays this with the hybrid picking technique but it can be done with standard fingerstyle technique as well. Nivel 5

Jimmy Buffett Guitar Lesson Package

This new lessons package includes 6 lessons. Right now we are offering lifetime access to these lessons for a limited time. This video lesson series is expertly taught by Neil Hogan.

Jimmi Buffett Come Monday – Level 5

This is from Jimmy's 1974 album 'Living And Dying in 3/4 Time' and is typical of many of his tunes- mostly open chords, easy strumming, and easy to sing by many folks without real voices! This song includes a hybrid picking technique that is part arpeggio and part alternating bass, as well as transitions from picking to strumming and back, which are a sticky thing for many students.

Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes – Level 4

This was the title song from Jimmy's 1977 album that really took him out of the local Florida scene and brought him into the national spotlight. The album also featured Margaritaville. Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes is a pretty basic Campfire song in the key of D and includes a couple of barre chords. This lesson looks at a percussive strumming pattern and includes 3 short instrumental parts where the melody/lead is incorporated into the strumming.

A Pirate Looks At 40 – Level 4

From Jimmy's 1974 Album A1A, A Pirate Looks At 40 is an introspective ballad that follows a simple 12-Bar Progression in the key of G. This lesson includes various fingerpicking accompaniment techniques and really encourages the student to create their own arrangement with each performance. There is also a segment on playing it in an Open G Tuning, along with a look at the way Jack Johnson covered it.

Son Of A Son Of A Sailor – Level 4

In 1978 Jimmy Buffett released his 9th album, Son Of A Son Of A Sailor, following his breakthrough album Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes. This song is another great example of how Jimmy can take a simple progression, melody, and accompaniment and create a very catchy tune. The lesson focuses on using a pick and mostly a single- string arpeggio technique. We also take a look at playing the intro combining two guitar parts into one.

He Went To Paris – Level 4

One of his earlier songs, He Went To Paris is a song Jimmy wrote after meeting Spanish Civil War veteran Eddie Balchowsky. It appeared on his 1973 album A White Sport Coat And A Pink Crustacean. It follows (or started?) a typical Buffett formula of a one-part song, meaning a series of verses without any real chorus. It was also covered by Willie Nelson. This lesson features a simple fingerstyle accompaniment with a few variations.

Margaritaville – Level 4

Margaritaville would have to be the defining song of Jimmy Buffett's career, as well as a poignant commentary on the state of American culture. In any case, the song is very fun to play and would have to be considered a poster song for the term 'Campfire Song'. In this lesson we look at some variations in chord voicings and inversions that can be added to the chorus, as well as playing the intro and the lead in 2-part harmony.

A Chord Solo is an instrumental arrangement of a song that incorporates the chord progression, the melody, and the rhythm and wraps them up into something playable by a solo guitarist. They also make great instrumental sections to a song you are singing, much like the original recording might include a lead break. This set of lessons introduces some of the concepts and techniques to get you started on this journey. It is designed to teach you how to make your own arrangements, not just play some that you may have heard.

Chord Solos I
A Guide to Instrumental Arranging
Información general

A Chord Solo is an instrumental arrangement of a song that incorporates the chord progression, the melody, and the rhythm and wraps them up into something playable by a solo guitarist. They also make great instrumental sections to a song you are singing, much like the original recording might include a lead break. This set of lessons introduces some of the concepts and techniques to get you started on this journey. It is designed to teach you how to make your own arrangements, not just play some that you may have heard.

Part 1: Introduction

Neil talks a bit about how he first got into instrumental playing as a young guitar student. He gives some examples of songs that can be done this way, although really any song can be arranged into an instrumental.

Part 2: Components & Techniques

This chapter goes over basic components to a song, and how the player must have a very clear idea of each of them individually before they can combine them into a solo. We will be working with Lead Sheets; simply a page of music representing only the melody and chord progression. We then take a look at some basic accompaniment techniques, strumming and fingerpicking, and how they will be used for creating solo arrangements.

Part 3: Greensleeves – Strumming

The first step into Chord Solos is to take a simple melody and add in a simple strumming pattern. We do this with the old English melody Greensleeves.

Part 4: Greensleeves – Fingerpicking

The next step with Greensleeves is to work on a fingerpicking version. The song is in 3/4 time which makes the bass part of the fingerpicking not quite fit into an alternating bass pattern, but keeps it similar to the strumming version from the last chapter.

Part 5: Grandfather's Clock – Fingerpicking

Most fingerpicking arrangements are done in 4/4 time. We use the melody Grandfather's Clock to head in this direction. This does use a standard alternating bass pattern, and is how many of your own tunes will be done.

Part 6: Grandfather's Clock – Strumming

Using the same melody we look at a flatpicking version, a little more in the Bluegrass direction.

Part 7: Parting Thoughts

This chapter is just a few short reminders, maybe bullet points, to send you off and try some songs of your own. At this point many of the songs in the TARGET Program where Neil does a Chord Solo in his Play Through will make a lot more sense. How to create your own should be a little clearer and certainly approachable.

Doobie Brothers 5+ Pack

1. Listen To The Music – Level 5
Album: Toulouse Stree t

Listen To The Music is the song that brought the Doobie Brothers into the spotlight as a real rock and roll band. It was the first of many great Tom Johnston tunes that featured a driving electric guitar sound combined with catchy melodies and solid harmonies. The lesson breaks down the opening guitar riff and the strumming for the rhythm guitar parts.

2. China Grove – Level 5
Album: The Captain And Me

China Grove opens with another Tom Johnston signature riff based on power chords that then evolve into more complex chord voicings and typical rockin' harmonies. The song appeared on their 3rd album The Captain And Me in 1973. The lesson includes all the rhythm guitar parts as well as some of the background fills that happen in the chorus.

3. Long Train Runnin' – Level 7
Album: The Captain And Me

This simple but very effective riff is trickier than it sounds as it requires two fingers hammering on and pulling off to and from a full barre chord up the neck, while keeping a fast, syncopated strumming pattern going. Like many other Doobie Brothers' songs Long Train Runnin' was almost considered a throwaway bar song by Tom Johnston before he was convinced to write real lyrics and polish it up. It became one of their biggest hits. The lesson covers the rhythm guitar parts.

4. South City Midnight Lady – Level 7
Album: The Captain And Me

The Doobie Brothers were a band with a couple of different personalities and sounds. Tom Johnston's hard rockers were balanced with Pat Simmons softer, country-rock tunes. South City Midnight Lady is one of his best from a guitar player's point of view as it features a free-form accompaniment style that is part strumming and part fingerpicking. It is done in an Open G tuning, giving it even a slight nod toward slack key guitar sounds. The lesson includes specific instruction on the free form style, as well as a Campfire Version that can be strummed with a pick.

5. Black Water – Level 6
Album: What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits

This fingerpicking song by Pat Simmons shows off even another dimension in the Doobie Brothers' sound- a bluesy, southern feel. It is a simple chord progression done in Double Dropped D Tuning but includes some snappy syncopated picking as well. The lesson covers all the accompaniment guitar parts.

Bonus Tunes

6. Chicago – Level 6
Album: The Doobie Brothers

Chicago is a country blues tunes that Pat Simmons learned as a young musician in Northern California in the mid 1960s from a local performer named Billy Dean, who was also referenced in a Hot Tuna song on their album Burgers. It is a modified 12-bar blues tune played in a Travis style in the key of A. It found a home as the last track on the 1st Doobie Brothers album in 1971.

7. Busted Down Around O'Connelly Corners- Level 5
Album: The Captain And Me

Another short tune from the Pat Simmons' bag of tricks, Busted Down Around O'Connelly Corners is Pat's arrangement of another Northern California penned instrumental. This was a fingerpicking exercise put together by James Earl Luft. Pat and James were students of Alan Beilharz in the early days and spent a bit of time trading songs and ideas. The song was originally titled The Ivory Salamander but Pat renamed it in honor of another local musician from the time, Michael O'Connelly. The lesson is a basic alternating bass accompaniment to some simple melodies found in common chord voicings on the guitar

Progressive Rock Guitar Lesson Package

Some of the greatest music of the late 1960s and early 70s was created and produced by bands that fall into the Progressive Rock category. Some of the items that put songs in this world include- extended and experimental compositions, complex harmonies and arrangements, classically influenced themes and techniques, and frequently a high level of virtuosity on the part of the musicians.

The two best-known purveyors of the style were probably Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Both featured keyboard wizardry at the hands of Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson, dynamic bass players in Chris Squire and Greg Lake, drummers at the top of the percussion world in Bill Bruford and Carl Palmer, strong and distinctive vocalists with Jon Anderson and Lake (who was also a great acoustic guitarist), and of course Yes had one of the most astonishing guitarists of our time with Steve Howe.

Other pioneering bands for the genre would include King Crimson (with Lake on bass and vocals), and The Nice, which is where Keith Emerson started experimenting with classical themes and extended solo sections. The early days cannot be brought up without mentioning Genesis and Gentle Giant, as they were also very important in the evolution of the style.

Most Prog-Rock tunes feature complex layers of instruments and parts that really require a talented ensemble to reproduce but many songs have interesting and playable sections that can be done by a solo guitarist. This set of lessons contains exactly that and represents a range of different sub-genres.

River Of Life is from the Italian band PFM. This lesson goes over the introduction, which is really a short classical guitar piece that becomes Baroque-like with the addition of piano, bass and flute or violin (depending on the band line up at the time).

In The Land Of Grey And Pink is a tune from Caravan, a band that falls into the Canterbury sub-genre. This style features some jazzy elements, frequently with unusual chords/progressions and somewhat whimsical lyrics. It is mostly a strumming song but includes an intro that uses some 3-string chord shapes moving up the neck, along with a percussive strumming pattern.

King Crimson is one of the bands that can be credited with being one of the creators of the entire genre. Their first album, In The Court Of The Crimson King featured Epitaph, sung by original bassist Greg Lake. This lesson goes over the basic chord progression, adds some arpeggio picking, and includes a look at common variations on some of the chords.

Camel was a band consisting of Andy Latimer on guitar and Peter Bardens on keyboards, along with Doug Ferguson on bass and Andy Ward on drums. Their first album came out in 1973 and included Never Let Go, a song that almost became a hit for them. It opens with a cross-picked arpeggio before settling in to a solid rock tune with a catchy melody. It included a well worked out solo section, which is part of what makes it a Prog-Rock tune. This lesson looks at the rhythm guitar part as well as the intricate intro.

At the top of the heap in the sub-genre of Symphonic Progressive would be Renaissance, an English band featuring singer Annie Haslam whose time spent studying opera added another element to the classically influenced compositions of Michael Dunford (guitar) and John Tout (keyboards). Their song Ocean Gypsy is an example of an intriguing chord progression and dazzling melody combined with a solo section for the piano. This lesson teaches the rhythm guitar accompaniment to the entire song

The Rolling Stones Guitar Lesson Package

The Rolling Stones have been a favorite band of guitarists and music fans alike for almost 50 years now and have been the creators of some of the greatest riff-based songs of all time. This set of lessons includes some very detailed looks and explanations of some of their songs, some simple strumming patterns, and a few that just go over the main riff or intro to one of their classics.

1) Angie

Angie, released on Goat's Head Soup in 1973, was believed to have been written about Angie Bowie, but Keith Richards actually came up with the chord progression and title as he had just named his daughter Angela. Mick Jagger apparently rewrote the lyrics about his dysfunctional relationship with Marianne Faithfull. One of the rare acoustic songs by the Rolling Stones, Angie is really a guitar duet with a straightforward accompaniment played by one guitar and lead fills by the other. The lesson covers the rhythm guitar part and included tab to a Chord Solo that Neil improvised in the Play Through Segment.

2) Paint It Black

Paint it Black was released in 1966 on Aftermath. It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, while Brian Jones' contribution on the sitar gave the song a unique texture, blending the Stones' hard rock and roll with the resonance of the sitar. The song is played in the key of D minor, but capoed to the 3rd fret, really putting it in the key of F minor. Paint It Black is a very simple song in terms of technique and the intro is a nice little picking rendition of the melody.

3) Waiting On A Friend

Waiting On A Friend is a fairly basic strumming song with a couple of notes added to C and F chords to create a little melody. This lesson goes over the simple rhythm accompaniment. Tab is included to the Chord Solo that Neil improvised in the Play Through segment.

4) Wild Horses

The Stones' recording of *Wild Horses*featured 3 guitars throughout the song, one acoustic guitar in standard tuning, another in open G (DGDGBD), and an electric playing mostly fills. This lesson looks at the basic rhythm part, playing some of the Open G parts, as well as a Chord Solo as Neil plays in the first segment.

5) You Can't Always Get What You Want

*You Can't Always Get What You Want*is really just a basic Campfire song and about as easy as it gets in the Rolling Stones' catalog. A few simple chords and a simple strumming pattern and you've got it. This lesson also talks about playing in different keys using a capo to create different sounds.

6) Bonus

The Bonus Songs in this set are from our series called *Intros, Riffs & Licks*. These lessons are usually between 5 and 10 minutes long and just go over the main distinctive or most recognizable part of a popular song. A Chord Chart and/or Tab is included, whatever is necessary, and many Rolling Stones songs would fall into this category. In this set of lessons we are including all the following songs:

Satisfacción
Brown Sugar
Honky Tonk Women
Jumpin 'Jack Flash
Start Me Up

This video lesson series is expertly taught by Neil Hogan teaching you some of the best guitar songs of Fleetwood Mac. Incluye ficha, gráfico y pro archivos de guitarra.

1) Oh Well

Oh Well is from the early days when Fleetwood Mac was a British Blues Band led by guitarist Peter Green. Its distinctive opening riff, as well as the rest of what was considered Oh Well Part 1 are covered in this lesson.

2) Rhiannon

In 1975 Fleetwood Mac revamped their line up with the addition of guitarist Lindsay Buckingham and vocalist Stevie Nicks, and released Rumours. Rhiannon became one of their biggest hits with a great guitar riff backing Stevie's haunting vocals. This lesson goes over the fingerstyle riff with a steady bass line and the chords to the chorus, as well as tab to Neil's chord solo arrangement as heard in the Play Through segment.

3) Landslide

Landslide is a fingerpicking song by Stevie Nicks and has been a favorite of Neil's students since it was released in 1975. It uses a very regular Travis-style pattern and only open chords. In the Play Through segment Neil plays an instrumental version that incorporates the melody into the picking, a chord solo. Tab to this arrangement is included as well.

4) Never Going Back Again

The follow up album by the same line up was 1977′s Fleetwood Mac. One of the songs featured on this was Lindsay Buckingham's short guitar piece Never Going Back Again. It is a basic fingerpicking piece that Lindsay played in Dropped D Tuning but this lesson presents an arrangement in a C Tuning- CGDGBE. This has the 5th string lowered 1 step and the 6th string lowered 2 steps. It is also known as C Wahine in the world of Slack Key Guitar. Using a capo at the 6th fret allows you to play the exact same notes Lindsay played with a little less stretching required.

5) Go You Own Way

Fleetwood Mac has been bringing the world great rock tunes since the mid-1960s. Their 1977 release, Rumours included Go You Own Way, a simple but driving song by Lindsay Buckingham. This Fleetwood Mac guitar lesson looks at the electric guitar opening, played with a syncopated muting technique, the acoustic guitar accompaniment (played with a capo at the third fret), and even a bit of the first lead, played over the verse.

This new lessons package includes songs from Gordon Lightfoot and is 5 guitar lessons. Right now we are offering lifetime access to these lessons for a limited time. This video lesson series is expertly taught by Neil Hogan teaching you some of the best guitar songs of Gordon Lightfoot.

1) Early Morning Rain

Early Morning Rain was written by Gordon Lightfoot and recorded by Peter, Paul & Mary, effectively bringing Gordon up the ladder into public view. His first record for United Artists, Lightfoot, presented his versions of many of his early tunes. This song is really more of a Campfire song, using a basic strumming pattern and a simple set of three chords in the key of D. It is done in Dropped D Tuning. Nivel 3

2) If You Could Read My Mind

Gordon Lightfoot was a well-known songwriter in the mid 1960s but in 1970 he became a household name with the release of If You Could Read My Mind. It features a gentle, rolling arpeggio fingerpicking pattern, and a relatively easy set of chords backing a beautiful melody. This guitar lesson looks at Gordon's repetitive pattern as well as how to expand and improvise a bit around it. There is also a short interlude that incorporates the melody into the accompaniment. The song is fingered in the key of G but with a capo at the second fret, putting it in the key of A. The lesson is done without the capo. Nivel 6

3) Sundown

Sundown is one of Gordon Lightfoot's biggest hits, and easiest songs to play. It consists of just four chords and a very simple strumming pattern. Two of the chords are unusual voicings/fingerings of an E and a B chord and the other two are A and D. This tune brought Gordon back into the public eye after 3 years of only moderate success in the airwaves. Nivel 2

4) Carefree Highway

Carefree Highway is one of dozens (maybe even hundreds!) of great songs by Gordon Lightfoot. This Campfire Lesson goes through the chords in the key of E, which include a few from the barre families, and some thoughts on strumming patterns. Nivel 5

5) The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald

The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald was a big hit for Gordon Lightfoot, from his 1976 album Summertime Dream. The song is a recount of the sinking of the freighter on Lake Superior in 1975. The lesson is mostly strumming open chords but we take a look at the opening lead fill as well. Nivel 3

1) James Blunt – Same Mistake 2007

Same Mistake was the second single released from James Blunt's album All The Lost Souls. The video featured a very unusual camera technique and the song features a rapid arpeggio accompaniment, as well as some strumming. The original was done with a capo at the 3rd fret, and although the lesson is done without it, some of the uses of a capo are discussed. Nivel 5

2) Jason Mraz – I'm Yours 2008

I'm Yours is a very catchy tune by Jason Mraz that uses a heavily rhythmic and percussive strumming technique with a lot of barre chords, including one outside of the normal 'A' and 'E' families. Nivel 5.

3) John Mayer - Why Georgia 2003

John Mayer's Why Georgia is one of the more difficult songs we have here at TotallyGuitars. This song uses very elaborate, percussive picking, as well as a somewhat difficult filler lick over a relatively uncomfortable and unusual chord, and that's just the first 2 measures. The rest of the song gets easier, a little, but don't let that scare you off! Nivel 8

4) Dave Matthews – Where Are You Going 2002

Another great strumming song from Dave Matthews, Where Are You Going appeared on the Dave Matthews Band album Busted Stuff in 2002. It uses some of his typical extended chords, ones with notes outside the normal major, minor and seventh combinations, is strummed with a basic pattern hitting bass notes on beat one. The lesson presents the chords in tab and generally addresses the strumming without getting too specific. Nivel 5

5) Pearl Jam – Just Breathe 2009

Really a solo guitar song by Eddie Vedder, Just Breathe is a fingerpicking tune much like Dust In The Wind or Blackbird. One of the similarities is that the picking is easy but very fast. This was released in October 2009 on the Pearl Jam album Backspacer. Nivel 4

6) Ray LaMontagne – Beg Steal Or Borrow 2010

Ray LaMontagne recently hit the current scene with a throwback sound and look, along with some great songs. Beg Steal Or Borrow is pretty much a folky campfire song that just uses a steady strumming pattern over mostly open chords. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award in the US for 2010. Level 3

7) Tom Petty – I Should Have Known It 2010

This Lesson has an interesting history. Neil was very surprised and impressed with this recent Tom Petty song, I Should Have Known It, and also ran across a teaching competition going on at Ovation Guitars. He put together a short lesson on the song and entered the contest with it. For some unknown reason Ovation chose not to publish the entry but we are bringing it out for our members. Neil's lesson combines a couple of guitar parts into one that is done in a G6 tuning, lowering the 5th and 6th strings 1 step. It is a great example of a solid riff-based tune framed in a modified 12-bar blues format. Nivel 5

8) Train – Hey Soul Sister 2009

With the lesson on Hey, Soul Sister, we take a look at another very catchy song that is part of the current music scene. Lead singer Pat Monahan said they were trying to write something in the style of INXS but as it evolved he was not happy with the sound. Maybe it was because it followed the classic 'Pachelbel Progression', IV-vi-IV, also found in songs like Let It Be, With Or Without You, and Jason Mraz's I'm Yours, to mention a few of the thousands in this category. In any case, once band mate Espen Lind strummed it on the ukulele, he was convinced that they had found the right recipe. In this short lesson we look at chord voicings that sound much like the ukulele. Nivel 5

9) Incubus – Drive 2001

Drive is probably Incubus's biggest hit and released in late 2000 on their album Make Yourself. It is really just a solo acoustic accompaniment to a very melodic tune that uses a few unusual chord shapes. It also features some syncopated changes making the strumming a bit challenging as well. Nivel 4

10) Guster – Do You Love Me? 2010

Guster is another band that has been putting out some catchy tunes over the last decade, most of which could be considered Campfire Songs and feature acoustic guitars using simple strumming patterns. Their 2010 album Easy Wonderful included Do You Love Me, a great example of their up-beat pop sound. This lesson is done in a 'Work It Out' format, where the first few video segments focus on ear training and figuring out the chord progression yourself. If you decide to try this approach, I recommend not looking at the chart until you have gone through ear training segments. The entire song is taught completely and in the usual manner in the last segment. Nivel 3

Our dear friend and Classical Guitarist/Teacher extraordinaire Hector Garcia has contributed a set of intermediate to advanced lessons that are now available in one package. The pieces cover a wide range of styles from different eras.

1) Greensleeves

Greensleeves is a traditional English Folk song. The piece was probably composed before the year 1580 since a ballad by this name was registered in that year. Nobody knows who the composer of Greensleeves is, although there is a persistent belief that the piece was composed by Henry VIII. Greenleeves is also mentioned in some of Shakespeare's works. Through the centuries, Greenleaves has been a beloved piece. There are many instrumental and song type versions. The guitar arrangement that is used for this lesson includes a main theme in traditional stile plus two variations. The first variation uses a set of arpeggios that follow the classical style from the 1800s. The 2nd variation is stylistically closer to the original theme. It has some counterpoint and ornaments that are found in renaissance music.

2) Lagrima

Lagrima is one of the simple preludes for guitar composed by the great Spanish guitarist Francisco Tarrega (1852-1909). The piece is very popular among classical guitar students. There are several recorded versions of Lagrima, including the ones done by Andres Segovia and Julian Bream. Consistent with other Tarrega compositions, Lagrima is an intimate piece that requires a careful observation of the instrument's palette of sounds.

3) A Time For Us

Black Dog features some great elements that are challenging on many different levels. It starts with a simple minor pentatonic scale, adds a trill here and a bend there, and combines rhythmic figures that are best played with the steady alternating technique. He then takes a phrase based on the main one and creates a variation with an unusual beat pattern that turns the picking upside down. This is another short lesson from our /Intros, Riffs & Licks/ series.

The Ocean is another classic Jimmy Page riff-based song, which first appeared on Houses Of The Holy in 1973. The riff is a great example of how Jimmy Page uses changing time signatures to great effect.

The Grateful Dead Guitar Lesson Package

This pack includes some of the Dead's most melodic songs, presenting mostly rhythm guitar parts but also including a couple of chord solos, where the melody is incorporated into the strumming. The set includes a few songs from their acoustic heyday, the early 70s, and one from their later days when they wrote about aging a bit. All of the songs are played with a pick and include charts with the chords and lyrics. Some lessons include tab for some specific parts.

1) Friend Of The Devil

Friend Of The Devil is one of Jerry Garcia's most popular songs among guitar players. It is from the American Beauty album, which was one of the first to feature shorter, more focused songs. The lesson goes over the gentle, country-style accompaniment and talks about keeping a steady bass line moving through the chord progression.

2) Ripple

Ripple has been a favorite Grateful Dead song among Neil's students for quite some time. The basic accompaniment is pretty straightforward, almost a Campfire song. This lesson covers strumming through the progression and includes tab to a Chord Solo arrangement, similar to Neil's Play Through segment.

3) Truckin'

Truckin' is a blues-based song that works around a shuffle rhythm in the key of E. This lesson looks at a couple of ways of playing the main rhythm guitar riffs as well as a detailed discussion of 12/8 time. It is presented without tablature but includes a chord chart and close-up descriptions of many of the parts.

4) Uncle John's Band

Uncle John's Band is a tune that is mostly basic strumming but includes a few time signature changes and syncopated chord changes that add an interesting effect. The lesson mainly concentrates on the rhythm guitar part but tab to a Chord Solo, similar to Neil's improvised Play Through in Part 1 is included for the more advanced students.

5) Touch Of Grey

Touch Of Grey was a song that the Grateful Dead starting playing live in 1982 but became a hit 5 years later when it was released on In The Dark. It is notable as really the only 'hit' the Dead ever had, breaking into the Billboard Top 10, and also for a memorable video showing the band as skeletons playing live. The song features some basic strumming over quite a few barre chords, mostly from the keys of E and B major. This lesson includes the opening riff played on the bass, as well as a very distinctive fill played in the chorus.

Canción de experiencia

A song Neil started playing many years before he had kids but became a big hit with them as they started school is Teddy Bears Picnic. It was written in the 1930s and recorded by many people over the years, most notably recently by Jerry Garcia and David Grisman on their album Not For Kids Only. This Target Campfire lesson goes over a traditional arrangement as well as a few thoughts on Jerry and Dave's version.

Female Song Writers Guitar Lesson Package

In this package we bring together a half dozen songs by some of the female songwriters and singers who have helped shape the course of music over a couple of generations.

1) The Circle Game

Joni Mitchell came on the scene in the late 1960s with an approach to songwriting using unusual open tunings. These made for interesting sounds and were not too difficult to play, once you were in the right tuning. The Circle Game is from her 3rd album, Ladies Of The Canyon, and is done in Open G Tuning with a capo at the 4th fret.

2) Gold Dust Woman

Gold Dust Woman, by Stevie Nicks and from Fleetwood Mac's Rumours album, is a song that can be played many ways. This lesson looks at fingerpicking it in Dropped D Tuning as well as a simplified way, strumming it in standard tuning. The fingerpicking version is mostly a basic pattern but includes a couple of more sophisticated techniques as well.

3) Más cerca de multar

Closer To Fine was one of the first hits for The Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, and has remained one of their most popular for over 20 years. The song features some quick strumming using a fairly easy set of chords, which act as a perfect accompaniment to their tightly woven harmonies.

4) Fields Of Gold

Eva Cassidy has become widely known as a phenomenal interpreter of songs from many eras. Unfortunately, this has all been after her untimely passing at the age of 33 in 1996. She had the ability to create simple guitar arrangements to act as the perfect backdrop to her incredible voice. In this lesson we look at her take on Fields Of Gold, written by Sting and originally done on his album Ten Summoner's Tales.

5) Strong Enough

Sheryl Crow is the author of many great tunes over the since the early 1990s. Strong Enough was released in 1994 on her album Tuesday Night Music Club and features some slightly unusual chords in the unusual time signature of 6/4. Otherwise, it is a pretty straightforward fingerpicking song.

6) Love Story

We take a step into the contemporary-country-pop world with a song that Neil has taught many of his younger students, particularly teenaged girls, Love Story by Taylor Swift. Taylor writes most of her songs and many feature the banjo. This lesson looks at playing the banjo part on the guitar in an alternate tuning and strumming away.

The Moody Blues Guitar Lesson Package

The Moody Blues were pioneers in bringing symphonic sounds into the world of rock and roll. Their 1967 album Days Of Future Passed is even considered one of the forerunners of the progressive rock movement that evolved into the 1970s. Their sound took on a slightly more pop/rock feel over the next decade and we now have many great guitar songs, mostly written by Justin Hayward, but John Lodge, Mike Pinder, Ray Thomas and Graeme Edge all made significant contributions.

1) Nights In White Satin

Nights In White Satin is from Days Of Future Passed and is a basic strumming song. This short lesson goes over the chord progression and includes a bit on understanding time signatures.

2) Tuesday Afternoon

Tuesday Afternoon, written by Justin Hayward, contains one of his signature sounds- a catchy guitar intro. This lesson includes tab to both the way it was done in 1967 as well as Justin's more recent solo versions.

3) Question

Question, from album A Question Of Balance, has been an elusive song to many guitar students for years. It was played by Justin Hayward on a 12-string guitar in Open C Tuning (CGCGCE), and included a very quick strumming sequence in the first part of the song. The second part was actually a different song until Justin realized they went well together, being in the same tuning. This lesson looks at a way of simplifying the strumming, as well as doubling the speed for the original sound.

4) Melancholy Man

Melancholy Man is also from A Question Of Balance and was written by Mike Pinder, the man responsible for bringing the orchestral sound of the Mellotron to the Moodies. It is a simple 3-chord progression in the key of D Minor and includes a haunting, descending melody line, which is incorporated into the guitar accompaniment for this short lesson.

5) The Story In Your Eyes

The Story In Your Eyes includes one of the best opening guitar riffs of all time. It is really just built around a set of A and A minor-shaped chords moving up the neck and not too difficult to play, although the timing is a bit tricky. The rest of the song is simple, but fast-paced strumming. This is from the album Every Good Boy Deserves Favour.

6) The Voice

In the late 1970s The Moody Blues reconvened with a bit more commercial sound and continued releasing some great songs, mostly penned by Justin Hayward. The Voice is from their 1981 album Long Distance Voyager and presents a fascinating chord progression, using chords from many different keys. This lesson is presented in our 'Work It Out' style where you are encouraged to figure out the chords by ear, with many hints and suggestions from Neil. If you choose to try this approach we suggest not printing the chart until you have gone as far as you can. The entire song is taught in Part 6.

Open G Tuning has been a favorite of guitar players going back to Robert Johnson and the early bluesmen, and still popular today thanks to people like John Fahey and Keith Richards. It is also one of the most common Slack Key tunings among Hawaiian guitar players where it is known as Taro Patch Tuning. This set of lessons includes mostly Neil's arrangements of intermediate-level songs.

1) Here Comes The Sun

Here Comes The Sun is of course George Harrison's classic from Abbey Road. This arrangement is in the Slack Key style using a steady alternating bass accompaniment.

2) Hula Blues

Hula Blues is a popular Hawaiian song from the first half of the 20^th century. This arrangement is based on one by Neil's friend Hall Kinnaman, who teaches guitar and ukulele on the island of Kauai. It features many of the signature licks we associate with the slack key sound.

3) Give Me Cornbread When I'm Hungry

John Fahey was once of the most influential American guitarists from the time he entered the music scene in the late 1950s. He played in many open tunings, generally with fairly simple chord shapes but complex picking patterns, and heavily inspired the next generation of players, notably Leo Kottke, among others. In this lesson we look at Give Me Cornbread When I'm Hungry. It features a few sections revolving around different chords in the key of G. The main point of this lesson is to take some of his ideas and change them around, really improvising and recreating the song every time you play it.

4) Buffalo Gals

Buffalo Gals is an American folk song from the mid-19^th century. Neil's arrangement makes for pretty simple chords and left hand moves. The right has one section using standard alternating bass technique but another using what he calls an eighth note roll, where there are only three bass notes in each measure, played in a syncopated pattern. Overall not too difficult, as long as you start very slowly and get it smooth before speeding it up.

5) Take Me Out To The Ball Game

Open G presents the opportunity to make fairly simple arrangements out of many traditional tunes. Neil has arranged Take Me Out To The Ball Game as an example of this. The song is in 3/4 time, using a modified alternating bass pattern, which makes it a little different and somewhat challenging at first.
