Cumberland Blues: Jerry Garcia Lead Guitar Lesson Trilogy Video Download



Add to Cart

Here are the three "Cumberland Blues" lead guitar lessons all in one place--Country Blues, Country Shred, and Country Major. This bundle includes three complete lessons, featuring shining examples of Jerry Garcia's creativity and technical ability.

Country Blues features a first verse solo combining elements of country and blues guitar, executed with Garcia's typical attention to phrasing, motif, and variation.

Country Shred offers up some of Garcia's trademark shred licks at three different positions on the neck in this second verse solo. You'll learn how to play them, how they work, and you'll see how they fit into a well-conceived solo. Jerry's shred has a comic quality to it. It can also be very intricate-sounding and rhythmic. And it's got BALLS. Fun stuff.

Country Major is an example of the last solo in Cumberland, where the sound gets a little sweeter than the first two solos. You'll pick up some pretty cool licks, and study great examples of how Garcia used variation--permutation--to take a few ideas and weave them into a complete solo.

These lessons includes tablature and a jam track mp3--a backing track that you can use to practice soloing.  Each lesson also includes a SLOWED-DOWN video demonstration of the solo, plus a SLOW jamtrack.  Download the bundle today!
