Course Spotlight |


Blues Rock Connection is going to help your guitar playing in a number of ways.

You might be hitting a dead-end wondering when how you’re going to get the most out of those Pentatonic Scales you’ve been working on.

Or, you may be stumped when it comes to expanding your blues rhythm beyond a standard 12 Bar Shuffle.

We’ve all been there which is why we decided to put together a course that starts you down the path to effortlessly integrate the rock FIRE into your blues playing.

In this course, Corey is going to show you how blues went from Albert King, Buddy Guy, BB King, Freddy King, and Chuck Berry & morphed into Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, Jimi Hendrix, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Billy Gibbons (just to name a few).

The best part is, every one of these bands used 12 bar blues progressions as a starting point to their songs.

The ability to change the timing, phrasing and feel can turn your solid blues foundation into something entirely new!

So what is the plan?
The goal of Blues Rock Connection is to make you a well-rounded guitar player. To do that we need to focus on elements of both rhythm and lead guitar.
