Sam’s Lesson of the Day
In today's lesson I have hooked up with Marty once again. I think Marty is a great teacher and easy to follow. Today's song is, "More Than a Feeling" by Boston. The only problem with this tune is you have to have a singer that can come close to Brad Delp and he had a grea…

In today's lesson I thought that some Delta Blues slide would be nice. Learning to play the slide can be frustrating and make you want to quit. All I can say is keep after it once you get it down it is a lot of fun. It makes a great time on the bar seen and people love to dance to it...

Today's lesson is for the beginner bass player. Most people think that playing the bass is easy because there are only four strings. But a good bass player is worth his weight in gold. He is the time keeper not the drummer. So if your thinking of picking up the bass remember you will never be o…

For today's lesson I thought some Led Zeppelin would be nice. The only thing you have to remember about playing Zep music is that you have to have a vocalist that can sing close to Robert Plant. This song isn't too tough on the rhythm but depending on how long you have been playing the lea…

In this lesson we will go back to the Eric Clapton Cream days. This song won't be too hard to learn but then the lead might be another thing.
