Kelly Richey's - Blues Grit
Genre: Guitar lessons
We’ve been impressed with Kelly’s playing for a long, long time but her teaching methods blow us away. Kelly is a dedicated, passionate and driven educator with miles and miles of educational accomplishments, most notably her Blues Grit curriculum, which has guided thousands of eager students far along the path to becoming street smart blues players.
You’ll get right down to business from the very start with a series of lessons covering fretboard navigation approaches, essential scales and chord vocabulary and all of the requisite blues right and left-hand techniques playing rhythm and lead guitar.
In the first two sections of the course, Kelly covers 5th & 6th String Scales & Chords, Finger Exercises, Flat Tire & Left Hand Muting, Advanced Rhythm & Muting, Hybrid Picking Punctuation, Double-Stops, Rakes & Slides, Bends & Vibrato, Hammer Ons & Pull Offs, Pinch Harmonics, Slap Harmonics, Strumming Patterns, Guitar Rig Setup and Practice Routines.
In the third section of the course Kelly guides you through 10 real-world blues Performance Studies in a variety of keys, tempos and feels: Hey Joe Blues, My Baby's Gone Crazy, Mean Old World, Crossroads Blues, I Went Down Easy, Fast Drivin' Mama, Tears Like Rain, Red House, Sister’s Gotta Problem and The Longest Road.
Kelly demonstrates all of the Performance Studies over rhythm tracks and then breaks them down measure-by-measure, technique-by-technique. You’ll first learn the parts as performed by playing along with Kelly while referencing the accompanying tab and notation.
All of the key demonstrations, performances and examples are tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes. You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can loop and/or slow any section down as you work through the lessons. Plus, Kelly generously includes all of the rhythm tracks for you to work with on your own.
Take Kelly and Blues Grit to your practice room tonight and you’ll be talkin’ the talk, and walkin’ the walk in no time!
