We have covered several releases from LickLibrary, and we have a review upcoming of their new ‘Jam Along with Steely Dan’ course. The materials are solid and well produced and make the exercises loads of fun. Now they are having a holiday ‘BOGO’ (Buy One, Get One Free) sale on ALL of their DVD courses, including new releases!
The most recent release is ‘Rock Licks for Absolute Beginners’, which is another great addition to their library. Here is the description:
In total there are fifteen short solos with almost forty licks, each of which can be played along to the backing track at slow, medium and up-tempo speeds so they can be heard in a musical context. One of the main emphases of the DVD guitar lesson is the development of a musical ‘ear’. Anyone can play a few licks, but a musician can hear. So to help the beginner rock guitarists learn and develop their ear there is a call and response section on the DVD. Danny plays a lick and the watcher copies by listening and watching what Danny does – a great way to develop playing and overall musicianship.
Each of the DVD courses includes plenty of level-appropriate material to get you going with specific music or techniques. The instructors are all enjoyable to watch and knowledgable in their craft. Working through their DVDs for review has taught me something new every time.
Head to the LickLibrary store and start shopping for yourself or the guitarist in your life for great BOGO deals on all of their instructional DVD sets!
