Let Rock & Roll History School You
Figure out 13 super famous riffs by ear
“You can get as many or as few hints as you want. It’s almost like working with a teacher. I really like it.”– Nick
Playing great music is about standing on the shoulders of giants.
Especially when it comes to guitar.
This course is about is going to the source of great music and making it part of your ‘musical vocabulary’.
It’s about tracing the footsteps of legendary guitar players, exploring the possibilities of the fretboard and absorbing all the great musical ideas hidden in rock and roll history.
Why should I learn these songs by ear?
While we’re talking about Rock and Roll history, consider this.
Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Santana, Eric Clapton all have something in common. They all didn’t use TABs or YouTube instructional videos to learn to play.
Nope, all the greats learned to play music by ear.
Here’s why this course helps you do the same:
- Figuring out the songs by ear helps you absord all the musical ideas in a much deeper way. When you figure something out by ear, it feels like you really ‘own’ it somehow. This really helps you not just remember the songs, but also to start using fragments of it when you’re improvising or playing solos.
- Learning the riffs by ear is the most important thing you can do to train your ears. It helps you hear music in greater detail, recognise musical elements and it’s the foundation for the ability to come up with something in your mind and instantly playing it.
- Learning by ear makes you a better musician. And while picking up a cool song keeps you motivated in the short term, feeling that you’re growing as a musician while keep you motivated in the long term as well.
