Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
For today's lesson I thought a nice flat top song would be nice. Something that you could play at home or open a set on stage or close the night with. This song is not to tough and is a cool laid back song by Bad Company. The name of the song is Seagull and was written by their drummer Simon Ki…
Great Minds Think Alike…On The Toilet
I don't know about you, but I do my best thinking in the bathroom. In fact, most of my major decisions involve thoughtful deliberation sitting on the throne. If you also have flashes of brilliance in the restroom, it turns out we're not alone...
Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
Today's lesson is You Shook Me All Night Long by AC DC. Great song for the bar circuit but you have to have a vocalist that can pull it off. Any time you can play any AD DC in a bar atmosphere you will be hitting a home run. People will drink more dance more and that makes the owner a happy per…
Sam’s Local Bands! Tribe!!
Well I thought it might be nice to start posting some local bands on the Hawks website. Now I personally might not be into all of the music scene as I am stuck in the classic rock era and don't seem to be able to change my taste in music. But that doesn't mean that I can't appreciate …
Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
I will do the same lesson again today as my favorite. I think that way you can hear the song and decide if you want to learn it or not. But most of my lessons would be great for the bar scene to get folks up and having a great time. So loosen up those fingers and Enjoy...

Sam’s lesson Of The Day!
Today's lesson is once again the same as my favorite. But as far as all the feedback well you will have to figure that out on your own with trial and error. But practice is fun if it's not you are in the wrong business. So loosen up those fingers and most of all Enjoy...
Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
Today's lesson is once again the same as my favorite. I Just Want To Make Love To You is actually a Willie Dixon tune but Foghat is the band that made it famous. This is a great song for a band playing the bar circuit because you can stretch it out to be a ten minute song if you need to...
Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
Once again today's lesson is the same as my favorite Pat Travers Snortin Whisky And Drinkin Cocaine. This one is a great rocker and sounds harder than it really is. If you watch this guy play the song you can pick out both parts of the guitar...
