How This Course Compares to Other Electric Guitar Courses I want this course as a download
MESSAGE FROM JAMIE....."Most instructional materials for electric guitar assume a ridiculously unrealistic competency on the part of the student, teaching advanced licks and calling them "beginner" licks. In the many years that I have taught electric guitar, I still see the same deficiencies, over and over again, in the students that come for lessons. Huge gaps in knowledge of Pentatonic Scales and how to use them, and how to make the licks they happen to know sound good.
Most students have trouble with the basic things like bending and vibrato, and the material out there to help them is, frankly, pathetic. I have never seen anything that actually explains what vibrato really is, and how the arm/hand/finger works together to produce it. Also, I have never seen a systematic way of teaching the arm/hand/finger to do a good vibrato. In our new course, however, that is exactly what you will see, and much, much more!"
MESSAGE FROM A STUDENT...."None of my guitar instructors and none of the countless DVDs that I have purchased over the last 7 years have really taught me to bend strings.Skip your next lesson with your local instructor and check this material out if this is your situation.
This DVD will teach you how to bend strings musically. I'm looking forward to taking my next lesson from my local guitar teacher, when he gloats about how he taught me to solo so well, I can mention this DVD as the source of the real learning. I highly recommend this product and would trade a huge stack of instructional DVDs and books for it."...........Thanks Jamie.......Shaune
Isn't it time to stop wasting money on guitar methods that don't bring results?
Really learn to play rock guitar with our Rock & Blues Foundation Course, by learning the "secrets" and hidden mechanics of bends, vibrato, all 5 scales and their Essential Licks, and much much more.....

From the Author
“This is the most complete course in Rock & Blues Electric Guitar ever created. There is nothing remotely close to it, and in fact, that is why it was created!
Most instructional materials assume a ridiculously unrealistic competency on the part of the student, teaching advanced licks and calling them "beginner" licks, as students who don't even know how to do a proper bend struggle to "get it", and unfortunately, it "gets them" instead, as they build in dangerous and debilitating habits of tension. Every practice session takes them further from their goals, and their music remains in an amateurish state.
I don't just "present" the material to you, I teach it to you!"...Jamie

Are you tired of paying some guy $50/hour to tell you that your solos are lame, I'm tired of that type of teaching. Skip your next lesson with your local instructor and check this material out if this is your situation.
This DVD will teach you how to bend strings musically. This DVD is full of excellent instruction that is really practical and useful.
The bending really got me though. I'm now looking forward to taking my next lesson from my local guitar teacher, when he gloats about how he taught me to solo so well, I can mention this DVD as the source of the real learning. I highly recommend this product and would trade a huge stack of instructional DVDs and books for it.
