”The music that comes out of Kentucky is a bit of a “Sonic Burgoo” — a musical stew of stylistic elements from country, blues, rock and funk that I affectionately refer to as Kentucky Backcountry Blues.”
In Greg Martin’s Kentucky Backcountry Blues course, you’ll explore some of Greg’s go-to approaches for building solos and rhythm parts, his influences, and a few of his slide tricks for playing in Open A, Open D, and standard tuning. You’ll apply it all by playing your way through 15 Backcountry Blues performance studies, over 10 live band tracks in a variety of keys.
”I’ve played with the Kentucky Headhunters now for over 30 years. Playing in a brotherhood like this for as long as I have, allowed me to develop my own voice on the guitar. Growing up in Kentucky, we were exposed to Rock, Country, Bluegrass, Blues, Gospel, R&B and the cross-pollination of many musical styles. As we bring these musical elements altogether, we'll delve into different aspects of rhythm, lead and slide playing. I’m excited to share many of my creative approaches and techniques with you here in this course.”
You’ll play over a Bo Diddley style jam in E, a Jimmy Reed style groove, and a funky jam in C sharp. Greg will guide you through a funk blues with a little early Jeff Beck influence, a Muddy Waters style blues jam in A, and an Elmore James style shuffle in open D. Next, you’ll explore a John Lee Hooker type boogie with a little ZZ top thrown in, a good old slow blues in C that you can stretch out on. You’ll wrap by digging into a funky Memphis soul groove, and a rolling and tumbling inspired jam.
Greg will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the performance studies. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson. You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.
