Denne nye leksjoner pakken inneholder sanger fra våre individuelle Beatles Lessons Pakker Volumes 1,2,3

Volume 1

1) Across The Universe

Across The Universe er en sang skrevet av John Lennon som dukket opp på Let It Be. Den åpner med et par særegne akkorder flytte opp og ned i halsen, og deretter legger seg en fin akkord progresjon i nøkkelen til D. Det er noen midlertidige endringer som er involvert, som i mange Beatles-låter.

2) Blackbird

Blackbird er en sang hver gitarist bør lære å spille. Denne solo melodi av Paul McCartneys bruker en jevn vekslende plukking teknikk som er et flott sted for begynnelsen fingerpickers å starte. Lærdommen snakker også litt om Paulus 'uortodokse teknikk som er på en mer middels til avansert nivå.

3) Day Tripper

Day Tripper er trolig en av de mest anerkjente riff-baserte låter i historien til rock and roll. Den viktigste delen av sangen ble sannsynligvis skrevet av John Lennon, og det er stort sett hva denne leksjonen fokuserer på. Låten inneholder da noen barre akkorder i refrenget.

4) Dear Prudence

Dear Prudence er en av John Lennons delikat fingerpicking brikker som inneholder det Travis-stil akkompagnement han lærte av Donovan i løpet av sitt besøk i India i 1968. Det spilles i Droppet D Tuning og er veldig konsekvent i de teknikkene som trengs.

5) Norsk Wood

Norske Wood er en enkel folkevise, skrevet av John Lennon som inkluderer en klimprer teknikk der melodien er plukket ut på de midterste strengene i løpet av klimprer akkorder. Dette er litt av et enkelt eksempel på en Chord Solo.

6) Noe

George Harrison virkelig begynte å komme inn i sin egen som låtskriver nær slutten av Beatles karriere og noe kan være hans kronen på verket som medlem av gruppen. Denne leksjonen ser hovedsakelig på hvordan George spilte solo, i nøkkelen av A, slik det dukket opp på Anthology album.

7) Two Of Us

To av oss er en annen McCartney låt fra Let It Be albumet som er stort sett en enkel Strummer, men inneholder en fin åpning riff, samt noen taktskiftene som gjør det viktig å telle nøye.

8) Yellow Submarine

Yellow Submarine ble skrevet av John og Paul som en melodi for Ringo å synge. Det er en veldig enkel Campfire sang, selv om det er noen en-beat-endringer som kan være litt utfordrende. Nivå 3 En av Paulus 'største sanger * I går * kan spilles med den enkle klimprer akkompagnement at Paulus brukt eller plukket finger.

Denne leksjonen ser på begge tilnærminger, samt en måte å gjøre det til en Chord Solo.

10) Du har Got To Hide Your Love Away

Du har Got To Hide Your Love er Borte en av John Lennons folkemusikk-stil sanger som er fra filmen Hjelp. Det inkluderer det meste akkorder i nøkkelen av G at alle holde 4 ^ th finger på den høye G (1 ^ st streng, 3 ^ rd slite). Det inkluderer også en fin synkende bass løp som går fra D til G som forekommer i mange andre sanger.

Volume 2

1) And I Love Her

And I Love Her er et av våre mest etterspurte Beatles-sanger. Denne multi-part Target Leksjon lærer både rytmegitar del og en kort titt på bly George.

2) Bursdag

Bursdag er et klassisk eksempel på å ta et enkelt riff, slippe det inn i en 12-bar blues format, legge noen fengende vokal over en kort akkord progresjon, kaste i en liten tromme pause og gitar fyll, og skape stor rock and roll i en løpet av bare et par dager. Paul kom opp med hoved riff og styrte sangen gjort av tiden resten av bandet var tilbake i studio. Denne leksjonen inneholder en Campfire versjon, slik jeg liker å ha nybegynnere lære det grunnleggende av sangen, samt en One-Man Band versjon der rytmegitar og bass deler kombineres til noe litt mer utfordrende. Ledningen delen inneholder noen teknikker oftere gjort på en elektrisk gitar, bøyer, lysbilder, og rask hammer-on pull-off kombinasjoner.

3) Hey Jude

En kort leksjon på Hey Jude tar Paul McCartneys piano melodi og ser på det som en enkel klimprer sang, mer i Campfire stil. Det inkluderer også en allsang og noen tips om å snu den til en instrumental ved å plukke ut melodien, selv om mange av de spesifikke detaljer er overlatt til den enkelte student.

4) Jeg vil følge The Sun

Jeg vil følge The Sun er en veldig tidlig Paul McCartney sang med en veldig enkel akkordprogresjon og korte lede. Dette Campfire sangen er veldig spillbart ved å begynne gitarister så snart du kan spille en F akkord, selv om den sperret versjonen er å foretrekke. Vi ser også på å innlemme den 8-notat bly inn i klimprer.

5) Jeg har nettopp sett A Face

Jeg har nettopp sett A Face er et bluegrass flavored flatpicking sang av Paul McCartneys fra Hjelp-album. Akkompagnement inkluderer en rask country mønster av treffer basstonene, hvorav noen er hamret på, og bruker også passerer notater for å koble akkordene. Demonstrasjonen går også over to akustiske gitar spilte som en intro, og George er kort leveringstid pause.

6) Julia

I 1968 Beatles lært litt om fingerpicking fra Donovan mens de var i India for en kort tid. Dette resulterte i en mye mer raffinert gitarlyd for et par sanger på 'White Album', inkludert John Lennons Julia. Denne leksjonen bruker Johns repetitive alternerende bass fingerpicking mønster med noen uvanlige akkord voicings, og viser nøyaktig hvordan han spilte originalen, inkludert en capo på andre bånd.

7) Strawberry Fields Forever

Ved slutten av 1966 Beatles var i tung produksjon og prosessering i studio, være fri til å tilbringe så mye tid som de ønsket på en bestemt sang. Denne perioden av kreativitet produsert noen av sine mest forseggjorte sanger, de fleste som kanskje ikke synes tilpasningsdyktig til å spille solo og sang. Men de fleste av dem startet å være enkle gitar sanger. Strawberry Fields Forever, startet av John da han var skyting en film i Spania, begynte på denne måten, og vi er så heldige å ha tilgang til noen svært tidlige innspillinger som John var i vane med å samle inn alle sine ideer som de utvikles. Denne leksjonen kombinerer noen versjoner, men er hovedsakelig tatt fra en frigjort som Ta 1, på Anthology 2, med tillegg av innføringen anordnet for solo gitar.

8) Ticket To Ride

En annen oppføring i vår kortere serien er Ticket To Ride også fra Hjelp. Dette er et godt eksempel på hvordan en låtskriver (Paul McCartney) kan ta svært enkle melodiske riff avledet fra en akkord, og lage en strålende stykke pop. Noen barre akkorder er nødvendig, men ellers er dette en svært tilgjengelig melodi.

9) Kan vi finne ut av det

Mange av Beatles-sanger gjør stor Campfire sanger og vi kan jobbe Det * Out * er et utmerket tillegg til vårt bibliotek. Så enkelt som mange av deres låter er, ganske mye hver og en har noen uvanlige vendingene som tilbyr gode læringsmuligheter. We Can Work It Out har en veldig interessant rytmisk endring, samt noen akkorder med uvanlige basstonene. Vi selv forsøke en multi-bånds barre på ett punkt.

10) While My Guitar Gently Weeps

En annen av toppen forespurte lærdommen her på TG var While My Guitar Gently Weeps, av George Harrison. Sangen dukket først opp på The Beatles 'White Album, offisielt kalt The Beatles, og denne leksjonen ser på rytmegitar del til at den versjonen, samt Georges akustisk demo-versjon som dukket opp på Anthology 3.

Volume 3

1) Here Comes The Sun

Here Comes The Sun er en lekse vi har hatt en delvis versjon av her på TG siden de tidlige dager. Neil har endelig satt sammen den fullstendige versjonen for vår Target Program. Sangen ble skrevet av George Harrison i Eric Clapton hage, som vinteren 1969 var å snu til våren i England. Denne leksjonen går i detalj om teknikker George brukes til å lage denne akustiske mesterverk.

2) I Feel Fine

I Feel Fine er stort sett en enkel, men effektiv riff avledet fra blues-skalaen og brukes på en modifisert 12-bar-format. Denne sangen er også kjent for å være den første til å bruke kontrollert tilbakemelding på et opptak. Level6

3) I Want You

I Want You er en sang med to distinkte personligheter, en modig, bluesy delen der sologitar dobler John vokal, og en semi-klassisk tastatur arpeggio med en noe skummel lyd. Begge deler er adressert i denne leksjonen med arpeggios blir gjort finger og bluesy delen med standard flatpicking teknikk.

4) Jeg skal tilbake

Jeg skal tilbake er et annet eksempel på en stor Beatles låt som er mest klimprer men inkluderer en smart åpning slikke, samt endringer i tonalitet fra dur til moll, ulikt noe annet rockemusikere gjorde på den tiden.

5) Jeg ser gjennom deg

Rubber Soul inkluderte mange akustiske orienterte sanger og Paulus 'Jeg Leter gjennom var du en av de som hadde en fin folk-swing føler for det. Denne leksjonen dekker måten det ble spilt på den opprinnelige utgivelsen, samt en tidligere uttak som dukket opp på Beatles Anthology 2 på midten av 1990-tallet. Den versjonen hadde mer av en bluesy følelse. Leksjonen inneholder også en kort orgelfyll som passer bra i en sperret G akkord. Nivå 4

6) In My Life

I My Life kan anses som den første sangen til å ta Beatles til et høyere nivå som låtskrivere. Det ser ut til å være litt mer samarbeids enn de fleste av sine sanger, men John og Pauls minner om dens begynnelse avvike noe. I denne leksjonen skal vi se på en grunnleggende rytme akkompagnement og George åpnings bly slikke, samt en litt mer komplisert akkompagnement til tastaturet solo.

7) Let It Be

Let It Be er en stor klimprer og synger melodi med en akkord progresjon som er mye moro å øve spille leads ved hjelp av Major pentatoniske skalaen. Dette 4-Part TARGET leksjon dekker rytmegitar del og noen av pianoet fyller, samt en diskusjon om bly spille generelt.

8) Michelle

I 1965 The Beatles sound var i endring, som det fortsatte å gjøre for de neste fem årene, og Rubber Soul, utgitt sent det året inkludert ganske mange akustiske sanger. Michelle, hovedsakelig skrevet av Paul bruker biter fra noe han opprinnelig hadde som en munter fransk klingende ditty, er et flott eksempel på en av disse. Gitaren spilles med en capo på femte gnage, og skaper en noe delikat lyd. Denne leksjonen inneholder gitarakkompagnement, samt den korte ledningen innlemmet i en Chord Solo.

9) Penny Lane

En sang som ved første øyekast virker ikke veldig spillbart, kan Penny Lane gjøres ved å innarbeide det i en gitar vennlig tasten (D-dur), og fokuserer mer på å flytte bass delen fremfor raske akkordskifter.

10) With a Little Help From My Friends

Det er mange nyanser i den innspilte versjonen av With a Little Help From My Friends som er ganske utfordrende å innlemme i en solo gitar akkompagnement versjon.

Jethro Tull Guitar lessons Package
Jethro Tull Package - - Klikk Da Pic å lære mer ...
Gratis Akustisk Elektrisk gitar Lessons videoer på nettet

En av de mest interessante band til å komme ut av 1960-tallet var Ian Andersons rullerende gruppe engelske musikere kjent som Jethro Tull. Bandet startet i en blues retning, men deretter ledet inn i en ukjent verden som kan anses Progressive Folk. Anderson virtuose fløyte og akustisk gitar ferdigheter kombinert vakkert med Martin Barre elektriske gitar stylings og kuttet en særegen bane. Dette settet av leksjoner fokuserer for det meste på noen av de akustiske mesterverk med noen rockere kastet i for godt mål.

1) Vi pleide å vite

Vi pleide å vite ble utgitt på den andre Jethro Tull album, Stand Up, som de var begynt å hodet ut av sine bluesrøtter og inn i en mer progressiv retning. Den har en interessant akkordprogresjon som den bruker mange akkorder bare tilgjengelig i den melodiske mollskalaen. Denne gitaren leksjonen forklarer forholdet mellom akkordene, klimprer på 6/8 tid, og en måte å legge til en ekstra gitar del ved hjelp av delvis akkorder opp halsen. Enhver likhet med Hotel California (skrevet mange år senere) er rent tilfeldig.

2) Aqualung

Aqualung var en av de første sangene (og album) for å virkelig bringe oppmerksomhet til Jethro Tull og sin fryktløse leder, Ian Anderson. Denne korte leksjonen går over hoved riff og sett av følgende kraftakkorder, samt akustisk gitar akkompagnement til den midtre delen av sangen. Nivå 5

3) Hymn 43

Hymn 43 ble skrevet av Ian Anderson og gitt ut på den klassiske Jethro Tull album Aqualung i 1971. Albumet består av ganske spekter av lyder og stiler, og denne sangen er basert på en enkel riff, noen enkle akkordskifter, og et par fin liten gitar fyller. De fleste av sangene Ian Anderson skriver, og spesielt hans akustiske gitar sanger, er svært utfordrende. Hymn 43 er mer av en elektrisk gitar sang og denne videoen gitar leksjon presenteres i fire deler, som inkluderer en nærmere titt på de akkorder og venstre hånd teknikker, en seksjon-by-seksjonen sammenbrudd, og en lek sammen segment med en metronom.

4) opp til meg

Aqualung omtalt ganske mange riff-baserte låter og opp til meg, som Hymn 43, er en annen en med enkle akkordskifter, en killer riff, med et pastoralt bro kastet i for litt variasjon. Denne leksjonen tar for seg noen av de vanligste tilskuddene Ian Anderson legger til hans rytmegitar deler samt en egen titt på hvordan han nå utfører den leve, i en annen toneart enn originalen.

5) Wond'ring Aloud

Wond'ring Aloud er en vakker ballade / folkesang gjemt i midten av Aqualung, av Jethro Tull. Det er et perfekt utstillingsvindu for den utsøkte gitarstilen Ian Anderson. Denne milde sangen er i 3/4 tid og har noen tiltak av enkel klimpring, noen forbinder kjøringer av basstonene, stor bruk av hammer-ons og pull-offs, og noen svært komplekse synkoper som gjør det svært utfordrende. En enkel akkord diagram er inkludert for en versjon som er veldig spillbart ved å begynne gitar studenter, samt detaljert fane som er svært nøyaktig til den faktiske versjonen undervist i leksjonen.

6) Mother Goose

En av de mest intrikate akustisk gitar låter fra Jethro Tull er Aqualung er Mother Goose. Dette er Ian Anderson på sitt intrikate og lune beste. Sangen spilles med en capo på femte bånd, bidrar til å skape en av hans lyder signatur, og bruker noen enkle, hvis noen ganger uvanlige akkorder. Hovedutfordringene i sangen er den raske og presise alternative plukking teknikk, og stor bruk av off-beat synkope.

7) Locomotive Breath

Locomotive Breath, fra Aqualung, er en flott sang å lære å klimpre med konstant høyre hånd motion teknikk. Du egentlig bare trenger å treffe en aksent akkord på første beat av tiltaket, og deretter holde en jevn flyt av åttendedelsnoter spilt percussively (demping strengene). Det gir deg også en sjanse til å øve barre akkorder fra A Major form, en av de vanskeligste for mange mennesker.

8) Thick As A Brick

En sang som vi har til hensikt å fullføre en leksjon på siden dag en på totallyguitars er Thick As A Brick av Ian Anderson og hans alter ego, Jethro Tull. Den har svært intrikate og raske flatpicking med komplekse syncopation, som alle må fortsette når sangen kommer inn, og det er alt bare i de første 30 sekundene. Resten av del 1 av denne 45-minutters mesterverk er mye moro å spille og vil presentere litt av en utfordring for selv svært dyktig gitarister, selv om mye av sangen er enkel klimprer. Selv om dette vil måtte anses som en avansert gitar leksjon, kan det være svært tilgjengelig for mellomliggende gitar elevene om de jobber på hver del veldig sakte. Leksjonen inneholder en komplett spille gjennom og detaljert instruksjon på hver av delene, en 60-minutters leksjon på en 3-minutters sang.

9) Living In The Past

Living In The Past ble gitt ut som singel i Storbritannia i 1969, men ble Jethro Tull første topp 40 hit i USA da den ble utgitt der i 1972. Det er en av et svært lite antall sanger skrevet i 5/4 tid og leksjonen går over klimprer på denne tiden svært omfattende. Den bruker også barre akkorder utelukkende, høyt på halsen, endre raskt. Det kan spilles med 4-strengs versjonen av den vanlige barre akkorder og denne tilnærmingen er dekket også.

10) Skating Away

Nå alle bør være klar over de utrolige talenter Ian Anderson, på mange nivåer. Skating Away (On The Thin Ice Of A New Day) * måtte bli betraktet som en av hans akustiske gitar klassikere. Sangen ble utgitt i 1974 på Jethro Tull albumet War Child og er en av Ians mest komplekse og tungt synkoperte mesterverk. Denne detaljerte leksjonen går over gitaren og vokalen, samt hvordan å kombinere dem i en stor solo presentasjon.

1. The Sounds Of Silence
Album: Simon & Garfunkel - The Sounds Of Silence

Det første treffet for Simon & Garfunkel ble opprinnelig spilt inn for debutalbumet onsdag Morning 3 AM i 1964, men ble populært et år senere da plateselskapet remikset og dubbes noen deler for å kle den opp litt. Denne leksjonen tar en detaljert titt på plukking gjort i begynnelsen og i første vers. Resten av sangen er vanligvis klimpret med en perkussiv mønster som inkluderer demping strengene på visse beats i hver takt.

2. april Kom hun vil
Album: Simon & Garfunkel - The Sounds Of Silence

En annen tidlig Paul Simon sang som inneholdt en solo vokal del gjort av Art Garfunkel.

3. Homeward Bound
Album: Simon & Garfunkel - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

Homeward Bound er et annet eksempel på Paul Simon kommer opp med en unik innledning som legger seg inn i noen gjenkjennelige fingerpicking mønstre og deretter inn noen milde klimprer. Det er litt vanskeligere enn noen av de andre på grunn av hastigheten av plukke og noen raske endringer i akkord kor.

4. Dangling Conversation
Album: Simon & Garfunkel - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

En av de mest poetiske og inspirerende sanger fra Paul Simon sangboken, bruker The Dangling Conversation noen grunnleggende finger mønstre og akkord inversjoner å skape en fredelig akkompagnement til Art grasiøs sang. Den vekslende bass mønster inneholder noen hammer-ons og pull-offs, samt noen opp ned kombinasjoner av basstrenger. Dette er et annet godt utgangspunkt for å bli kjent med noen av Paulus 'teknikker.

7. The Boxer
Album: Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water

The Boxer is probably the best example of Paul Simon's sound- complex but elegant fingerpicking, poignant lyrics that many people can relate to, and a memorable instrumental section to ad to the mix. The lesson goes into great detail to look at the opening guitar lick, the accompaniment picking to the verses, changing to strumming in the chorus, and a way to play the instrumental break as a solo fingerstyle guitar piece.

8. Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard
Album: Paul Simon- Paul Simon

From Paul Simon's 1st solo album, Me And Julio is a fun strumming song which exclusively features open chords. The lesson covers the introduction, which uses chords voicings played up the neck, and then settles down into a constant strumming pattern played in the key of A major. Aside from the chords changing quickly, this is probably the easiest song in this collection.

9. Duncan
Album: Paul Simon – Paul Simon

Our other song from Paul's 1st solo album, Duncan is a straightforward fingerpicking tune, similar to April Come She Will and The Boxer, although a bit faster. The lesson also includes a solo guitar arrangement of the instrumental section, originally played on wooden flutes or recorders.

10. American Tune
Album: Paul Simon – There Goes Rhymin' Simon

From Paul's 2nd solo album, There Goes Rhymin' Simon, American Tune uses mostly open chords in the key of C. The picking patterns can be done a few different ways and the lesson includes a segment that is more Campfire style, using 2 simple accompaniment patterns, as well as a more detailed segment on branching out into some of the varied and improvised techniques that really set Paul Simon apart from most other singer/songwriters.

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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 6

Vi fullføre denne pakken med en av sine mest komplekse låter, Candyman Blues. Dette er i nøkkelen av A og har ganske mange opp halsen akkorder i solo delen. Det er også et eksempel på hvordan den jevne rytmen av basstonene er viktigere enn det harmoniske formål, noe som betyr at han ofte bruker alle tilgjengelige åpen basstonene uavhengig av hvordan de er knyttet til akkorden. Nivå 6

Gratis Akustisk Elektrisk gitar Lessons videoer på nettet

Denne nye leksjoner pakken inneholder sanger fra 1990-tallet og er 10 gitartimer. Akkurat nå er vi tilbyr levetid tilgang til disse leksjonene for en begrenset periode. Denne videoen leksjon serien er fagmessig undervist av Neil Hogan lærer deg noen av de beste gitar sanger av 1990-tallet

1) Dave Matthews Band - Crash Into Me 1996

Crash Into Me av Dave Matthews er et eksempel på en sang som bruker en droning akkord med en litt flytting basslinje for å opprette en interessant akkompagnement. Droning akkord er bare en E5 (power chord) og basstonene endres med en synkopert rytme. Som i mange av Dave sanger, er akkord fingret litt stretchy men lærdommen fokuserer på å telle nøye for å få basstonene på de riktige stedene. Nivå 5

2) Extreme - More Than Words 1990

Mer enn ord, ved Extreme har en interessant, men vanskelig teknikk for høyre hånd. Det er en perkussiv spillestil som krever en konstant rytme som ligner på en klimprer mønster. Sangen ble skrevet av Nuno Bettencourt og Gary Cherone og dukket først opp på den andre Extreme album Pornografitti, i 1990.

3) Metallica - Nothing Else Matters 1992

Nothing Else Matters, som mange Metallica sanger inkluderer en flott intro samt en enkel akkordprogresjon som grunnleggende akkompagnement til vokalen og ledelsen deler. Dette en-del leksjon bryter ned den klassiske gitarstil arpeggio plukking i introen samt rytme gitar deler til vers og refreng.

4) Nirvana - Kom som du er 1992

Nirvana kom på scenen tidlig på 1990-tallet og var en viktig del av grunge bevegelsen som startet i Pacific Northwest, delvis inspirert av noen av Neil Youngs sanger og stiler. Kurt Cobain skrev og sang noen veldig grunnleggende sanger, hvorav de fleste er interessante akkordprogresjoner sammen med noen kule riff. Come As You Are is a great example of this as it starts with a simple riff that is followed with a set of 2-finger barre chords. It is important to play the riff with the alternating picking technique, and the barre chords could even be reduced to power chords, making this song even a little easier to play.

5) Pearl Jam – Better Man 1994

Pearl Jam is band that came of age in the 1990s and their 1994 album Vitalogy included Better Man, a song Eddie Vedder wrote when he was still a teenager. This 1-part lesson features a simple picking pattern over a few chords that slide up the neck, as well as the standard major chords in the key of D- D, G and A.

6) Oasis – Wonderwall 1995

One of the biggest hits by Britpop band Oasis, Wonderwall is a simple strumming song featuring easy chord changes. This 1-part lesson gives you everything you need to strum along with the band, as long as you have a capo at the second fret. The lesson is done without the capo.

7) Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah 1994

Hallelujah was written by Leonard Cohen in the early 1980s but really came into the public's view with Jeff Buckley's 1994 recording done with a gentle arpeggio accompaniment in the key of G but capoed up the neck. It has been done by many other artists and this lesson looks at Kate Voegele's version as well, done in the key of C. This 11-part lesson includes a peek behind the scenes as Neil gives us a glimpse as to how he goes about working on the Play Through segments of our video lessons.

8) Queensryche – Silent Lucidity 1990

Silent Lucidity uses a modified arpeggio accompaniment pattern, occasionally with measures in an odd time signature, over relatively simple chords that include some open strings. We take a look at the picking in the verses, strumming and a picking pattern in the chorus, the accompaniment to the solo, and even the solo itself.

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.

This new lessons package includes songs from the 1980′s and is 10 guitar lessons. Akkurat nå er vi tilbyr levetid tilgang til disse leksjonene for en begrenset periode. This video lesson series is expertly taught by Neil Hogan teaching you some of the best guitar songs of the 1980′s.

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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 2

Crosby, Stills And Nash Guitar Lesson Package

Gratis Akustisk Elektrisk gitar Lessons videoer på nettet

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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 6

The 1970s were the heyday of what is now considered Classic Rock. This Package presents detailed lessons on 10 of the most popular songs Neil has taught over the last 4 decades.

1) The Band – The Weight

The Weight is one of the most popular songs by Robbie Robertson and The Band. It was released in 1969 on their 1st album, Music From Big Pink. The whimsical lyrics and instantly recognizable opening lick make it a lot of fun to play and sing, especially if you can round up some friends to sing along. This TARGET Short lesson includes playing it in the original key of A as well as transposed down to G. Level 4

2) Pure Prairie League – Amie

Amie was written by Pure Prairie League co-founder Craig Fuller and released on their 2nd album, Bustin' Out in 1972. It became a hit a few years later and is one of the top requested songs here at TG. This lesson goes over the chord progression, strumming patterns, and includes chapters on the Intro Lead, the Main Lead, and the Outro. Level 6

3) Kansas – Dust In The Wind

Dust In The Wind is a classic Travis-style fingerpicking song that is a 'must learn' lesson for all guitar students. It uses a steady alternating bass technique in a repetitive pattern. The main difficulty is getting it up to speed but it will come with practice. It appeared on Kansas's 1978 album Point Of Know Return. Level 4

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. This is a great lesson for improving the accuracy of hitting individual bass notes as part of a strumming pattern. It has been covered by hundreds of artists, most notably the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Sammy Davis Jr., and even Bob Dylan. Level 4

5) Townes Van Zandt – Pancho And Lefty

Pancho And Lefty was written by Texas songwriter Townes Van Zandt and recorded on his 1972 album The Late Great Townes Van Zandt. It has been covered by many artists, including Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Joan Baez, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. Townes always said he didn't really write the song as much as discovered and channeled it, a frequent occurrence for talented songwriters. This Campfire lesson goes over the chord progression and encourages the student to improvise some fingerpicking patterns as the accompaniment. Level 5

6) The Hollies – Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress

Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress was written by Hollies singer Allan Clarke and a couple of British songwriters, Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway. It appeared on the Hollies album Distant Light, released in 1971. It features one of the greatest opening riffs in the history of Rock And Roll, followed by a driving, power chord-based progression. Another 'must learn' tune for students into the classic rock era. Level 6

7) Elvis Costello – Alison

Alison is one of Elvis Costello's best-known songs, it was released on his first album My Aim Is True, in 1977. Like many of his songs, the lyrics can be interpreted in multiple ways, and it is not likely that this is the love song that it might appear upon first listen. The song is in the key of E, and that means plenty of barre chords, including some 1-beat changes. The lesson uses a fingerstyle plucking technique in the intro, followed by finger strumming accompanying the verse and chorus. Level 5

8) Elton John – Madman Across The Water

Madman Across The Water was written by Elton John and his main lyricist, Bernie Taupin and was the title song from his 1971 album. It is one of his few songs that features acoustic guitar. The lesson goes over the basic riff and strumming accompaniment. Level 5

9) Blue Oyster Cult – Don't Fear The Reaper

Don't Fear The Reaper was written by Blue Oyster Cult guitarist and singer Buck Dharma. It appeared on their 1976 album Agents Of Fortune and was their first big hit. This is a great song for guitar players of any level. I make just about all of my students learn the opening riff early in their guitar lives. The chords can all be played with just 2 fingers, many of which are just power chords. It is also a good way to learn the technique of placing your left fingers down one at a time, in the order you need to play them, rather than slapping the whole chord down at once. Level 4

10) Billy Joel – It's Still Rock And Roll To Me

It's Still Rock And Roll To Me is one of the few Billy Joel songs that features the guitar rather than the piano. The song appeared on his 1980 album, Glass Houses and is written from the point-of-view of an aging artist who is pressured by his label or manager to get with the times. 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. The song opens with single bass notes played using the palm mute technique. Half way through the verse it starts strumming, then continues with a combination of the two techniques. Level 5

George Harrison Guitar Lesson Package

George Harrison had a long career after his life with the Beatles and he wrote and recorded a huge catalog of great songs. 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 5

4) Beware Of Darkness

All Things Must Pass was the album that really brought George Harrison's songs to the attention of the public. Released in 1970, just after the Beatles broke up, it was full of great songs, including Beware Of Darkness. The song was also recorded by Leon Russell at about the same time, and in 1996 was covered by the modern progressive rock band Spocks Beard. All Things Must Pass was produced with a very heavy hand by Phil Spector, but we are fortunate that George made some demos that were stripped down to just solo performances. Consequently, this song makes a great acoustic guitar lesson. It is played in the key of E, using quite a few barre chords, along with a couple of chords outside of the key, and the lesson includes a segment on transposing it to the key of B as well. Level 6

5) It Don't Come Easy

A song George wrote around the same time, It Don't Come Easy was given to his old mate Ringo and became one of his first solo releases, coming out in April 1971. It features a simple opening guitar lick, obviously much in George's style.. George and Ringo performed it live at the Concert For Bangla Desh later that year. It is a pretty basic strumming song with a distinctive opening lick. Level 4

6) Give Me Love

In 1973 George released the follow up to All Things Must Pass, Living In The Material World. It included his next hit, Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth), a song played with a capo at the third fret and mostly chords in the key of D. Many of George's songs feature unusual chord combinations and this is no exception. The strumming, on the other hand, is somewhat basic. The lesson includes a quick look at a piano fill that occurs in the chorus as well. Level 4

7) All Those Years Ago

George Harrison and his old band mates were masters of interesting chord progression, many times combining chords from multiple keys into one section of a song, and other times reaching out pretty far from conventional harmonic patterns. All Those Years Ago reaches outside the box a bit with the addition of a diminished, an augmented, and even a minor sixth chord. This guitar lesson focuses mostly on strumming the chords, although we also look at playing a shuffle-type riff with a bluesy lick, as well as a couple of segments on transposing it to a key different from the original. The song first appeared on his 1981 album Somewhere In England, and was written as George's tribute to John Lennon. Level 6

8) Handle With Care

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. Nivå 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. Nivå 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. Level 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. Nivå 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. Nivå 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. Nivå 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. Level 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. Nivå 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. Nivå 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. Nivå 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. Level 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. Nivå 5

Emerson, Lake & Palmer Guitar Lesson Package

Gratis Akustisk Elektrisk gitar Lessons videoer på nettet

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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Nivå 5

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.

A Guide to Instrumental Arranging
Oversikt

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

Gratis Akustisk Elektrisk gitar Lessons videoer på nettet

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.

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:

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

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. Akkurat nå er vi tilbyr levetid tilgang til disse leksjonene for en begrenset periode. 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. Level 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. Level 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. Level 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. Nivå 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. Level 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. Nivå 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. Level 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! Level 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. Nivå 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. Nivå 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. Nivå 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. Nivå 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. Nivå 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. Level 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

Written by Nino Rota, the romantic theme from the movie Romeo And Juliet, also known as A Time For Us is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful movie themes. There have been several different versions of the song including the famous instrumental version by Henry Mancini and the ones by Luciano Pavarotti and Josh Groban. This guitar arrangement is based on a piano version. The A minor key chosen for the arrangement makes it possible to have a version that fits the instrument well and uses most of its range while allowing the player to use expressive elements that are essentially guitaristic (vibratos, slides, etc.). This makes the piece sound as if it were composed originally for guitar.

4) Speak Softly Love (Love Theme From “The Godfather”)

Speak Softly Love (Love Theme From “The Godfather”) is a song written for the first film in the Godfather trilogy in 1972. While its instrumental version is simply known as The Godfather Theme, Speak Softly Love is the vocal version. The words are by Larry Kusik with music by Nino Rota. Originally sung by Andy Williams, other artists, such as Bobby Vinton, have also recorded the song. Slash of Velvet Revolver (formerly of Guns N' Roses) had also performed it in a hard rock style. Slash's version contains backing chords from Izzy Stradlin, bass from Duff McKagan, piano from Axl Rose and has a solo in the beginning. Many versions recorded all over the world are also popular. There are multiple arrangements of the theme for large and small orchestras, bands, and even ethnic instrument groups. Also, there are solo versions arranged for the most popular instruments. Good guitar arrangements are among the best, since the music allows guitar players to use the rich expressive features that the instrument offers.

5) The Canon In D

The Canon In D by Johann Pachelbel is one of the most popular and widely recognized compositions from the last 500 years. Pachelbel was a German musician who predated JS Bach by a generation in the mid-late Baroque period. A canon is one of the most strict and complex forms of composition that exists, requiring the composer to construct a melody that can be played in multiple voices and blend with each other where each voice is following each other, playing the exact same melody. It is a bit like an endless round. Pachelbel's Canon In D was originally written for three violins to carry the melody over a basso continuo part, which outlined the harmony. This part could be played on a harpsichord, cello, or even a lute. It follows a simple chord progression that can be broken down into 8 equal units with regular changes. In the key of D Major, the chord progression is D – A – Bm – F#m – G – D – G – A. The original score started with the bass introducing the progression, then Violin I starting the melody, followed by Violin II and Violin III each one series behind. Due to the nature of the original composition, an accurate and complete solo guitar arrangement is impossible.

Many pieces of the original melody lend themselves very well to a guitar transcription, and keeping the harmony with chords and bass notes is manageable. However, the three voices played in counterpoint on a six-string guitar with only two hands has led to many guitarists of varying levels creating their own arrangements with a huge range of accuracy and difficulty. Hector Garcia's arrangement is done in Dropped D Tuning (DADGBE) and features the opening chord progression and a dozen or so variations on the melody, ranging from Level 4 to Level 8. We encourage guitar students to tackle this masterpiece in small chunks, the equivalent of 4-measure sections in this arrangement.

The Kinks Guitar lesson Package

The Kinks were one of the British pioneers in the new sounds that were developing in the 60s. Led by songwriter Ray Davies and his brother Dave, they were a band with many different styles, ranging from pre-punk to acoustic ballads, with even a touch of jazz at times. This pack includes short lessons on two of their power chord/riff style songs, as well as extended lessons on three of their more complex tunes.

1) You Really Got Me

You Really Got Me was the 1st big hit for the Kinks, just when they were on the verge of being dropped by their record company. Neil considers it one of the 1st, and best examples of 'Caveman Rock'. It uses 2 power chords in a very simple theme that is then repeated at 3 different spots on the neck. This is a great place to start your excursion into sliding power chords.

2) All Day And All Of The Night

All Day And All Of The Night was the second hit for the Kinks, on the heels of You Really Got Me. It also continues the 'Caveman' concept and takes it up a notch with the addition of some full barre chords, including some from the 'A' family, which really require 2 barres. The riff is a bit more complex as well.

3) Lola

Probably the most famous tune by the band, Lola came out in 1970 on their album Lola Versus Powerman and the Money-Go-Round. It is a relatively simple strumming song but includes some barre chords and syncopated changes.

4) Sunny Afternoon

A song that many people don't even know was them, but they can immediately identify is Sunny Afternoon. It was written by Ray Davies and is a very quirky look at life with money. The chord progression is based on a descending bass line in a minor key and has a somewhat jazzy feel.

5) Waterloo Sunset

Waterloo Sunset began in Ray Davies head as Liverpool Sunset, partially owing to his fondness for the Merseybeat sounds of bands coming out of Liverpool at the time. The song featured a strumming acoustic guitar with a short lead using a tape-delay echo effect, a sound that had been popular a decade before but then forgotten. This Target lesson incorporates the lead part with the rhythm and occasional bass runs to create a very full texture.

Led Zeppelin Guitar Lesson Package

Led Zeppelin would have to be considered one of the greatest bands in rock history. They had quite a range of styles and sounds due to the combination of talents and virtuosity of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham. This package includes songs from their first five albums, some acoustic classics as well as some of their riff-based, power chord songs. These lessons concentrate on the rhythm guitar parts, as Page's leads are generally improvised solos, and a completely different subject. The Bonus Songs are generally shorter lessons that cover the important parts of each song without going as deeply into all the specifics. All these lessons are presented the way Neil teaches them to his students and are very accurate acoustic versions of Jimmy Page's songs.

1) Babe I'm Gonna Leave You

Babe I'm Gonna Leave You is an acoustic fingerpicking song played using arpeggios (chords played one string at a time). It uses a repetitive 4-mote pattern and the challenge is to keep all notes ringing as long as possible. Jimmy Page took credit for arranging it as a traditional tune when it appeared on the first Led Zeppelin album. Page and Robert Plant had heard it on a Joan Baez album and later added the real author, Anne Bredon to their credits.

2) Heartbreaker

The second Led Zeppelin album (Led Zeppelin II) included some great riff-based songs. Heartbreaker has to be one of their best and proved to be the inspiration and model for hundreds of songs that followed it. The recording also featured a classic improvised, unaccompanied guitar solo by Jimmy Page that was later edited into the released version. This lesson looks mostly at the riff and rhythm guitar parts.

3) Tangerine

Tangerine has been one of the leading requested songs here at TG for quite some time. Jimmy Page had the basic idea for the song developing while he was with the Yardbirds and they recorded the prototype as 'Knowing That I'm Losing You.' In 1970 he resurrected and recorded it on Led Zeppelin III, their most heavily acoustic oriented album. Although the song was played on a 12-string, tuned down one half step, with the addition of a mandolin, the acoustic guitar part is the main part of the sound. This lesson goes over the rhythm guitar part, paying particular attention to picking out the moving melody notes and getting the offbeat chord changes just right.

4) Stairway To Heaven

Stairway To Heaven would probably have to be considered one of the greatest songs in rock history, as well as a very important song for all guitar players to learn. It encompasses many techniques from fingerpicking arpeggios to strumming partial chords moving up the neck, and of course a killer lead to close the epic. This lesson covers all the rhythm guitar parts.

5) Over The Hills And Far Away

Over The Hills And Far Away is from Led Zeppelin's fifth album Houses Of The Holy, and is a great example of Jimmy Page's effective use of syncopation and complex acoustic picking and strumming, as well as quick hammer-ons and pull-offs. This lesson focuses mostly on the acoustic intro but also addresses the power chord riffs that appear later.

Bonus Songs

Whole Lotta Love became one of Led Zeppelin's early signature songs after it was released on Led Zeppelin II and is one of the simplest Jimmy Page riffs ever. This short lesson is part of our /Intros, Riffs & Licks/ series and covers the basic riff and chord changes.

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.

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) Closer To Fine

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.
