Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
Today's lesson is some great riffs that will help you with playing Jimi Hendrix tunes. Hendrix was a master but he used a lot of shortcuts that sounded great. He was a leader in music and a lot of people took heed in what he did including Eric Clapton...
Sam’s Lesson of the Day
For today's lesson I thought you should see a couple of different ways to play "Thunderstruck" by ACDC.
There is the easy way and then there is the way it is played on the album. Actually both ways would sound alright in a bar atmosphere...
Sam’s Lost Bands
This week we will go back to one of my favorite bands that just doesn't get any airplay any more.
The band's name is Mountain and this is a song off their "Nantucket Sleighride" album. Mountain was known for being loud and heavy but this song is laid back...

This interview is with one of the great guitar players of all time. (At least thats the way that I see it) Joe Satriani  is one of those players that can do just about anything with the guitar. Slow fast what ever the feel he is one of the best...
Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
Today's lesson is a rocker from Sammy Hagar before he was in the Van Halen band. This song was on the VOA album and is not a hard tune at all. I personally liked Sammy when he was with Montrose and a solo artist better than when he was with Van Halen...

Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
Today's lesson is once again the same song as my favorite. Frijid Pink and The House Of The Rising Sun. I love the way Frijid Pink did the song and is well worth learning the lead so you can play it in a bar and turn some heads. This song almost didn't make the album but that is another st…
