This excellent DVD set will teach you note for note the riffs and solos that defined this hugely popular Thin Lizzy lineup! The DVD is presented by Jamie Humphries, author of the acclaimed Giants Of Rock and Giants Of Metal guitar courses. He is a tutor at one of the UK¹s leading music colleges, and a regular contributor to Guitar Techniques magazine.
On this dynamic DVD, Troy Dexter plays examples in the style of such rockabilly greats as Scotty Moore, Carl Perkins, Brian Setzer, Eddie Cochran and Duane Eddy. He demonstrates effects devices (tremolo, echo, reverb and distortion) and how they were used by each player. Troy also shows chord voicings and application, and the scales inherent in rockabilly. He gives examples of thirds and fifths, intervals, whole-tone licks, chromatic lead-ins, horn stab riffs, chord raking, vibrato bar techniques, bends, slides, shuffle rhythms and more. The accompanying booklet comes complete with easy-to-follow notation and diagrams that correspond exactly to the DVD.
Ear training is a skill that can be built to identify chords, their quality, intervals and rhythmic structure. This skill is invaluable for those wishing to learn songs, and compose music by ear.
'Every Guitar Hero Needs a Ballad'. That is what our co-founder Jan Cyrka said when we decided to create our first ever JTC original full length album. Vai, Satriani, you name them…they have one! So we spoke to a number of the artists on our glittering roster and asked them to compose their ultimate ballad. The result is a powerful album that is full of pure emotion and drive and takes you on a journey through the minds of 11 incredibly talented guitar players and composers.
