Rock Essentials Level 1
Your Rock journey starts here!
This course will take you on a journey of the rock genre, from classic rock to more modern sounds, working with the rhythm and lead approach you need to be a rock player. We feel strongly that a great rock guitar player should be comfortable stepping back and chugging on some monster riffs, as well as putting one foot up on the monitor and improvising a mean solo!
"We need to not only teach the techniques and skills required, but also the feel, passion and energy of rock!"
Within the course we take great care to spell out, very clearly, the formulas you need to master for rock rhythm, as well as lead! We look at the way great rock stars blend pentatonic riffs, cool darker notes, and a range of rock chords that combine to make "heavy riffs!". To ensure this is applied properly, we will be working through custom-written tracks that are perfect study pieces, and Claire guides you through every aspect of them.
As for Rock lead playing; We tackle the scales at work in rock music, revolving licks, sequences, speed development, rock techniques (such as vibrato, rock bends etc) and even how to phrase and build your solos correctly. No stone is left unturned, and we make sure to gradually build your skills so as not to overwhelm you from the get go!
"If you're an intermediate player looking to make real progress in the world of rock, you will LOVE this course!"
