Have you every wanted to be able to play like Jimi Hendrix or Rory Gallagher? Learn classic riffs from guitar legends, techniques like hammer-ons, bends and slides and how to create your own solos.

Here are some examples of what you can learn on the electric guitar

  • Major and minor pentatonics and the blues scale
  • Phrasing and stressing the blues – introduce phrasing and rhythm into your playing to turn the scales into effective lead melody lines
  • Bending  – what notes to bend & different types of bends (pre-bend, slow release, whole tone bends, double stop bends)
  • Chromatic and passing notes
  • Improvising over basic 12-bar blues using all the above techniques
  • Classic licks – learn how the legends have done it


Was good fun, and I now have a real sense of direction for what I should be practicing
