Need Your Love So Bad Solo Sessions

Learning the solos of your favourite players is one of the best ways of developing your musical repertoire.

It will help you to build a vocabulary of ‘go-to’ licks that you can use in your solos and improvisations, and develop your lead guitar technique.

In this course we will do a deep dive into the beautiful playing style of Peter Green – one of my favourite guitarists and one whom I think is greatly underrated.

This will help you to learn a variety of nuanced lead guitar techniques, and to appreciate how to solo over a delicate major blues chord progression.

My story

I have played guitar for over 20 years and have loved blues music for just as long.

5 years ago – after getting complacent with my practice and playing, I decided I wanted to push on with my playing.

I started to document my journey and share tips on gear, practice and playing.

To my joy, that helped to turn me into a full time Bluesman.

I have since gone on to work with hundreds of blues guitarists all over the world through the Blues Club and 1-2-1 coaching.
