David Gilmour (guitar player and vocalist for Pink Floyd) is one of my all-time favorite guitar players and I’m actually surprised it’s taken me this long to put together a lesson showcasing his style. One of the reasons it’s taken me so long is because he has SO much depth, it’s actually overwhelming to try […]
In this blues guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play a solo blues arrangement in the key of G (played with no accompaniment). I’m also playing this with a pick (so no fingerstyle required for this one). I do use a hybrid picking technique in a few spots, but they’re fairly straight-forward and should be […]
J.J. Cale was probably best known as being a great singer / songwriter, but his unique approach to playing lead and rhythm (without a pick) has influenced thousands of guitarists. His style was simple and elegant, and always seemed to perfectly compliment the music. This guitar lesson showcases some of J.J. Cale’s style of lead […]

One of the most common emails I get from folks that are learning to play the guitar is, “Ok, so I know my chords and scales… now what?” There seems to be a mental ceiling that we all hit at some point and knowing how to improvise is a big one. In this lesson, I’ll […]
In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play over a simple Em, C, A chord progression. This style of lead is similar to something you might hear T-Bone Burnett or Bill Frisell play and takes advantage of the tremolo (whammy bar) on your guitar. If you don’t have a tremolo, you can still play […]
In this guitar lesson, I’ll show you how to play a classic Chicago blues style rhythm and lead in the style of the great Jimmy Rogers.
